Paths and Selvedges Scarf — Wild Madder Root
The design of this scarf comes from the structure of the forest: the human and animal paths that run through it, and the interesting life that flourishes in the edges and spaces between different ecosystems, be them wetlands, woods, fields or logging areas. The wide colorful selvedge of the scarf curls around with other paths on a textured ground.
The red ground color of this scarf is dyed with Wild Madder Root which grows abundantly in the field north of my home. Multi-colored stripes are from a range of plants, fungi and lichens.
Wonderfully soft and squishy, the New England grown and spun fiber is 50% Romeldale wool / 50% fine grade alpaca. Hand wash.
12.5” wide by 72” long, plus 3” hand twisted fringes. Weighs 4.25 ounces.
