Rafter Scarf in Hedgerow
Inspired by the small delicate pink seen in purple crownvetch growing along hedgerows, this chunky knit Rafter Scarf is handmade using my organically dyed moss, raspberry and heather yarns with the natural undyed ecru of my Portland sheep. It is generous in its width and length so you can wear it in a variety of ways - and have plenty of depth to cover your neck and face on really windy days. The larger block patterns in this scarf are created using a knitting technique called intarsia which requires patience and careful hand finishing to the reverse.
Size: 200cm long by 33cm wide
All of my knitted products are designed, handmade and finished in my Cotswolds studio by my own hands. I use a hand powered knitting machine - no electricity or machine power is involved. The wooden tags sewn onto each piece to mark the unique Loopy Ewes provenance, are made for me in Devon on FSC certified wood. No solvents are used in their printing and I hand sew them onto each product using organic cotton thread. This is slow fashion at its best.
