This scarf is an extra thick & slightly wider version of my usual Homespun infinity scarf -- twice the thickness of my regular Homespun scarves. Using two strands not only makes for a bulkier and warmer scarf, it also gives the scarf a wonderful cushiony feel. An exciting bonus is I can combine the many, many different Homespun colors to get some truly unique color combinations.
While the scarf is bulky and extra long, it's still quite lightweight at 8.5 oz.
The color is called Rococo, a very classy multi-tonal beige/light tan. The yarn has a subtle sheen.
Yarn Content: 98% Acrylic/2% Polyester
Yarn Brand: Lion Brand Homespun
Label Color: Rococo
Approximate Length (full circumference unstretched): 92 inches/234 cm
Approximate Width: 5.5 inches/14 cm
Thickness: 1/2 inch/1.2 cm
This yarn contains NO wool, so no itchiness. (I find Homespun and a few other silky & soft yarns such as Caron Simply Soft and Bernat Satin to be the smoothest and most comfortable yarns to wear. For many of us who can't afford cashmere, it's the way to go!)
It’s long enough to be looped up to four times. Three or four loops will transform it into a cozy neck warmer/bulky cowl.
As with this scarf, I generally make my infinity scarves a traditional scarf width (infinity scarves can be as wide as 10 - 12 inches). The wider scarves may be fashionably dramatic, but the narrower ones are easier to manage and more flattering. This one can be put on quickly and easily—it falls into place without a lot of adjustment. For someone my size, 5’ 4” and small-boned, the larger scarves are overwhelming while the infinity scarves that are a more traditional width look and feel perfect.
This scarf is crocheted “in the round” to eliminate any seams. With infinity scarves, the very small area (1/2 inch wide) where I turn to start new rows will always look a little different from the rest of the scarf, but this can always be worn behind the neck, if desired. With this particular scarf, it blends in relatively well. (:
An infinity scarf provides versatility in both fashion and function. When worn closely to the neck, this yarn provides warmth, and the more loops around the neck, the warmer it will become. Simply put, the amount of warmth & insulation provided depends purely on the way it’s worn.
An Infinity scarf can be worn in a variety of ways…
--Can be worn at full length as one large loop. This is good for warmer weather or when used purely as a fashion accessory.
--Can be worn as two loops at different lengths for a double scarf look. Pull scarf over head, twist in front into a figure 8, pull loop you’ve just created over your head. Adjust to desired lengths.
--Can be worn as two or three loops at equal lengths to create a cowl neck.
--Can be worn as three or four loops to create a snug neck warmer or bulky cowl -- great option for cold weather.
Can be washed in cool on a delicate cycle and dried in dryer on low setting. However, I recommend either hand-washing in cold water and laying flat to dry, or washing on a gentle cycle in a lingerie bag and drying only a few minutes in the dryer. The gentler washing & drying prevents the yarn from frizzing over time. Avoid washing with heavier garments that cause friction. If using washing machine, avoid washing with items that have zippers, buttons, etc that may snag the yarn loops and pull on them or make the yarn fray.
Note: All yarns come with some degree of "factory residue" that makes the yarn feel a little stiff. This will disappear with normal handling and/or the first wash, bringing out the true softness and silkiness of the yarn.
I keep shipping to a minimum and offer First Class Parcel as the best value for price & speed. For Ready to Ship items, I'll ship the same or next day. For items made to order, I'll ship as soon as I have the scarf finished (within the timeframe stated in the listing title). I use the Paypal/USPS integrated shipping system whenever possible, so you will be provided with a delivery confirmation number by email from Paypal. Most First Class packages only take two days to be delivered, sometimes three to four days for more remote areas of the country. Sorry, residents of Montana! (:
I most commonly use USPS First Class International for shipping outside of the US. USPS does not offer delivery confirmation or tracking for First Class International. First Class International may take a long time to arrive, but it's much more affordable than Priority International (which usually runs $20 or more for a few ounces). Delivery time for international packages is usually 5 to 15 business days. Customs, bad weather, or national holidays can sometimes slow down a package with the occasional shipment taking around 30 days to arrive. This only happens to about 5% of my international shipments. (:
International Buyers Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.
I only accept Paypal. If you don't have a Paypal account, you will still be able to pay with a credit or debit card through Paypal. You can also pay from your bank account using an E-check (also through the Paypal system), but I won't be able to ship until the check has cleared, Paypal says it's okay to ship and allows me to print out a label.
For now, I am not accepting returns, but am completely open to resolving any problems that may occur. I feel the best strategy is to head off any problems before they even happen. If you have any questions whatsoever about any items I am selling, please ask.
Thanks for looking! (:
