Violet Linen Scarf

Artist Statement: An unexpected and elegant twist on classic linen, in a scarf that you must see and feel to believe! A luxurious scarf of purple and violet wool/silk that is like the finest linen.

I hand knit this beautiful scarf using a soft and fine wool/silk blend that is hand dyed in purple, grape, violet, periwinkle, lavender, lilac, and every shade in between. The intricately small stitch that I used creates a linen-like fabric, framed by a narrow seed stitch border. This lovely scarf is the one you'll want to wear with your very finest, and because it's so lightweight, you can wear it year round. The wool will keep your warm in Winter, and the silk cool in Summer.

82" long and 5" wide. With this length, your options are endless. Incredibly lightweight -- you won't know that you're wearing it!
