Artist Statement: This will definitely bright up this winter!
Ñuke means "mother" in mapudungun, which is the language of Mapuche, the native people of southern Chile and Argentina. My mother got this colorful yarn for me, so I couldn't refuse to make a scarf with it. I have to say I really like the result!
This scarf has 50 strands, all of them are sheep wool. It has the magenta and the mustard-golden strands. And then, it has a thick yarn in magenta, yellow, green and everything in between. It is really fun!
This accessory is a must-have for this winter, and with its versatility you will certainly use it for many years.
It has a ring on one side, which allows to play with it and use it in different ways: a simple knot, two-sided knot, necklace, double wrap for a neckwarmer... One thing is certain: you'll always get compliments and make heads turn when you are wearing it!
• It measures approx. 36 inches in length (1 meter) and about 4 inches (10 cm) wide in your neck.
• Washing instructions: hand wash in cold water with mild detergent. Hang from the ring and shape it.
• Satisfaction guaranteed. Item must be returned within 7 days for full refund of purchase price (less shipping charges).
