Handwoven Silk Merino Scarf - Purple
Handwoven in Northern Ireland, and inspired by bohemian living, these luxurious silk and merino scarves are a perfect example of slow, sustainable fashion.
Inspired by the wonderful range of colours within the Irish land and sea scape, which are frequently exposed to the full range of conditions within a single day, each scarf takes several days thought and work and will be unique for the owner.
A blend of silk threads (55%), Merino wool (40%) and cashmere (5%), they are perfect for glitzy evening wear, or as a cosy wrap for the variable outdoor temperatures.
The wool comes from sheep bred and shorn in Ireland. and all the processing, treatment, spinning, dyeing and preparing, is also all completed in Ireland.
