This is a warm soft deflected double weave scarf with a dramatic black and cream pattern. It is certainly eye catching and would add a wonderful highlight to an outfit. The scarf’s warmth comes from the closeness of the fibres and would make for a lovely mid-winter scarf. The wool and cotton mix means the scarf is nice and soft against the skin.
I have woven the scarf in deflected double weave which is one of my favourite weave structures. On the loom it is woven in a single layer but because of the way the threads lie over or under other groups of threads it forms a second layer and there is a depth to the pattern and colours that is so satisfying and pleasing.

The cream coloured yarn is a silk/cotton blend. Silk blended with cotton adds extra length and lustre to the cotton. It has a lovely smooth feel about it.
The black yarn is New Zealand merino wool. Merino sheep are regarded as having some of the finest and softest wool of any sheep. This type of yarn makes for wonderful scarves because it is so soft when placed around your neck.
This deflected double weave scarf measures 63 by 8 inches (160 by 20cm) this excludes the fringe. The fringe is approximately 4 inches (10cm) long and has been twisted which as well as giving a nice touch to the scarf it also helps protect those warp ends from wear. The scarf has been hand stitched at either end which helps with preserving the scarf and also another feature to help complete the handmade look.
To take care of your scarf you will need to gently hand wash in warm water, separately from other items. Rinse. Lie flat in the shade to dry. If you think the scarf needs an iron then do so when it is still damp.
The deflected double weave scarf will be packaged in a black gift box with our logo on the front. Inside the box the scarf will be surrounded by tissue paper.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
