This cowl is single length, with a twist at the base. It pairs perfectly with open necked T shirts, tunics and dresses. You can have the fringe either out on display or turn the scarf over to have the plain edge showing.
Before hand weaving this cowl I dye the yarns using the flora of our local environment. Each dye bath comes out slightly differently, making each cowl unique and individual. It is a completely natural process, using only leaves, water and heat. Some pieces may have highlights of coral, fuschia or even indigo, which will be from the intentionally left residual natural dye of a previous dye bath.
Alpaca fibre is resilient and will keep its shape and softness for years.
Should you need to wash it, do so by hand only, in warm soapy water, agitating as little as possible. Squeeze out excess water by folding it in a towel and pressing down. Do not wring. Dry laid out flat. Not to be tumble dried. Iron with a cool iron, protecting it with a cotton or linen tea towel.
