Hand Woven Scarf – 80% Acrylic 20% Alpaca – Twill Weave HW49
This scarf has been hand woven by me and is made using a top quality acrylic and alpaca blend yarn. It is the perfect size and weight to tie around your neck, double up and loop etc. to keep the weather out!
I normally only use natural fibre but the acrylic yarns allow me to experiment with different styles of weave and colour plus produce scarves at a slightly lower price to the more expensive natural fibre hand woven items.
Scarf details are:-
- approximately 173 x 14 centimetres, 68 x 5.5 inches
- 80% Acrylic 20% Alpaca
- weave structure is "twill"
Receiving your scarf and caring for it:-
Washing scarves before use is not required, as I care for them here before they leave me. When you do come to wash your scarf make sure to be gentle with it. A woven scarf should last you many years of gentle use.
A tepid hand wash is generally all that is necessary, squeeze dry and then dry flat (you may also roll in a towel to get the worst of the water out). Please make sure to not rub or agitate the scarf… as fibre can felt or bobble easily!

Please note that I photograph all my products to reflect the colours as accurately as I can (if there is any slight discrepancy I will note this in the description) but, however good my photographs are, the colours can appear different on other computer screens. I will always do my best, but I am at the mercy of your computer when viewing these images.
