A three season scarf- wear for Spring, Autumn, and Winter. Add some leafy goodness to your wardrobe!

The body of the scarf was knit using a 100% wool Donegal Tweed (Aran Tweed) yarn, it is constructed with the stockinette stitch and curls to form a soft tube. The color is a deep forest/hunters green- a lush, spectacular color! Two additional strands of trim frame the scarf. Soft, colorful, and organic, these trims are mixes of tufted, textured yarn that I've hand-tied into an organic, tendril of alternating greens & turquoise; and another strand of crocheted squiggly, tendril-like yarn.

The beautiful, delicate embroidered leaves are individually embroidered by me, and are inspired by real leaves. This scarf features lots of leaves of emerald green, apple green, light teal, sap green, pine green, and teal blue hues. Leaves include: sycamore, fairy bells, fig, apple, tulip tree (yellow poplar), California black oak, and features the flower-like leaves of the water plant Marsilea mutica (water clover). I create all my leaves myself- absolutely no embroidery machines, embroidery patterns, or anything of the sort are used! All leaves are made of silk dupioni fabric. Felted wool berries of shades of sap green, emerald green, and teal are placed at irregular intervals and are enclosed by a web-like embroidery.

Length: 78 inches (198.12 cm)



Made in a smoke-free environment with love and great attention to quality and detail. The edges of each leaf are treated with Dritz Fray Check to prevent Fraying.
