Paths and Selvedges Scarf — Buckthorn
The design of these scarves is inspired by the structure of the forest: the human and animal paths that run through it, and the interesting life that flourishes in the edges and overlaps between different ecosystems, be them wetlands, woods, fields or logging areas. A wide colorful selvedge of the scarf curls around with other paths on a textured ground.
The ground color of this scarf is dyed with Common Buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica) bark. Common Buckthorn is an invasive in North America, so I have a plentiful and ethical supply from various nearby lands that work to remove it.
Wonderfully soft and squishy, the New England grown and spun fiber is 50% Romeldale wool / 50% fine grade alpaca.
12.5” wide by 72” long, plus 3” hand twisted fringes. Weighs 4.25 ounces.
USPS Priority Shipping within the US is included in price.
