Merino Scarf Black & Hand Dyed Blue
This is a warm soft scarf with hand dyed blues and purples contrasting with black to give a well defined pattern. It is certainly eye-catching and would add a wonderful highlight to an outfit. The scarf’s warmth comes from the closeness of the fibres and would make for a lovely mid-winter scarf. Woven by Tasman textile artsit Jane Clark NZ.
Jane have woven the scarf in a deflected double weave pattern which is one of her favourite weave structures. On the loom it is woven in a single layer but because of the way the threads lie over or under other groups of threads it forms a second layer and there is a depth to the pattern and colours that is so satisfying and pleasing.
The variegated purple and blue yarn is hand dyed merino. The black yarn is also New Zealand merino wool. Merino sheep are regarded as having some of the finest and softest wool of any sheep. This type of yarn makes for wonderful scarves because it is so soft when placed around your neck.
This scarf measures 66 by 8 ½ inches (166 by 22cm) this excludes the fringe. The fringe is approximately 4 inches (10cm) long and has been twisted which as well as giving a nice touch to the scarf it also helps protect those warp ends from wear. The scarf has been hand stitched at either end which helps with preserving the scarf and also another feature to help complete the handmade look.
