Rafter Scarf in Mocha
My undyed collection embodies the most natural features of my flock. Not only does it beautifully showcase the contrasting colours their wonderful fleeces produce, but it allows for minimal processing, ensuring the least harm to the environment. The lovely mocha comes from my Castlemilk Moorit sheep and the ecru is from my Portlands.
The Rafter Scarf 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.
