"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 slightly thicker Merino Wool, spun in Yorkshire, England. 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.

Where to buy

McKernan scarves are woven on carefully restored 19th century Hattersley looms and knitted on modern state-of the-art Stoll knitting machines. Using only the finest quality natural yarns such as merino wool, cashmere, silk, alpaca, and linen and combining different qualities and weights achieves a huge variety of textures and looks. Each scarf designed, made and hand-finished at the mill in Tuamgraney to ensure the highest quality is achieved
