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 wool felts easily!
If you are using soap on your wool, make sure to use PH Neutral soap as acidic soaps can leach colours and ultimately bleach natural shades of wool. This is not a result of poor dyeing, but instead a result of the acid destroying the fibre (which will cause wear over time).
To give you an idea of the time it takes to create this product I have written a brief process for you.

Day 2 – The warp is set up on the loom
