Handwoven Scarf (109)
Increasingly I am finding more folks whose skin is sensitive to wool. So in spite of the fact that wool is one of nature’s best insulators, I make some scarves of other materials! This one is made of 100% cotton in a multicolored plain weave with two thin stripes surrounding one wide stripe on each end. Measuring 5 and ½ inches wide by 62 inches long, each end sports a French twisted 3 and ½ inch fringe. Closer to a heavy weight garment, this is long enough to wrap around your neck to keep out the breezes, but can also be used as a colorful accessory with plainer clothing for inside wear. It has been handwashed in cool water, using mild soap and line dried. I added a spot of fabric softener to the rinse to give it a softer hand.
