"The colour of this scarf changes thread by thread over its full width. To achieve this unique effect the warp is made from a shiny Merino Wool from Piedmont, Italy using a vertical hand-warping mill. The weft yarn is a thick and fluffy Boucle yarn that creates a bubbly effect. The scarf is woven on a historic 19th century shuttle loom that creates a selvedge on every scarf. The fringes are then knotted by hand." Available in a wide variety of colours.
