Infinity scarves are so versatile and comfy to wear. This one is light and extra wide, so you can scrunch it up around your neck, or drape it elegantly over your shoulders. You can let it hang long or wrap it twice around your neck for that extra bit of warmth. They are also wonderful if you are feeding your new baby, giving privacy to yourself and breathable, comfy warmth and protection to your baby.
I have woven this infinity scarf with our pure alpaca yarn (hnad dying it first) from our own herd, onto a warp of fine NSW merino.
Suri is the softest of alpaca fibres. it is silkier than wool and will drape elegantly around the body – it’s warmer than wool too, so you will feel extra cosy on those cool days and chilly nights. The suppleness of the yarn means you can wear it equally well as a scarf, scrunching it up around your neck, or lay it wide over your shoulders, adding elegance to a beautiful evening dress.
Our alpaca products are truly sustainable with the fibre coming from either our own herd or those of neighbouring farms. We clean the fleece of vegetable matter and select the best of the locks. Due to the fragile nature of the suri fibre we then send it to a local small scale mill, just a couple hundred kilometres away. Once they have cleaned, carded and spun it into the fine yarn, it is returned to us. We weave this luxurious yarn as is, in its natural colour, or we gently dye it ourselves, using either natural or gentle non toxic dyes. Sometimes we also add a fine silk, or recycled sari silk.
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.
