Handwoven of Hand Spun Yarn ~ 50% Cashmere ~ 50% Wild Tussah Silk ~ Hand Hemstitched ~ 66 x 9.5 Inches plus 7 Inch Hand Twisted Fringe

Soft Cashmere is highlighted by shimmering Silk in this luxurious scarf. The reflective Silk in this scarf made it difficult to capture the true colors in the photos. The colors are darker than they appear and include gold, dark fir green, teal, rust and dusty rose...the colors of a vibrant fall forest. The colors are best represented in the close-up photos. Suitable for a man or a woman, this scarf can be worn for any occasion, casual to dressy. While a beautiful accessory, this scarf is also warm winter clothing for hiking in the mountains or through the concrete canyons of a large and blustery city.

A Cashmere Goat (Capra hircus laniger) is any breed of goat that produces cashmere wool, the goat’s very fine, soft, downy winter undercoat. Some of the cashmere producing breeds are Australian, Changthang, Hexi, Inner Mongolian and Tibetan Plateau. The word cashmere derives from an old spelling of Kashmir. Cashmere is characterized by its fine, soft, warm fibers that can be worn comfortably next to the skin. It provides a natural light-weight insulation without bulk. The original natural colors of cashmere wool are various shades of grey, brown and white. It dyes beautifully. Cashmere is collected during the spring molting season when the goats naturally shed their winter coat. It is estimated that on average yearly production per goat is 150 grams (about 1/3 lb).

Wild Silks are made by a variety of silkworms such as Tasar (Tussah), Muga and Eri. They are not fully tamed and the world lovingly calls the silk they produce 'Wild Silk'. Wild silkworms eat a various diet such as the castor plant, osage orange and different types of mulberry leaves. The resulting silk can be creamy white to gold in color. The cocoons, when gathered, usually have been damaged because the moths have emerged to continue the cycle of their lives. The silk strands are shorter and when spun, produce a heavier yarn that is similar to very fine wool or cashmere.

Natural, renewable fibers will last for generations ~ Easy Hand Wash instructions are included

Hand spun and woven in the wildly beautiful Trinity Alps of Northern California.

Please note: The lifelike figurine of the Cashmere Goat that is shown in one of the closeup photo is not included with the purchase of the scarf. It is there to show the configuration of the animal that provides its wonderful fiber for humankind. The figurine is one of the creatures that are made by Colin, who's shop, Colins Creatures, can be found here in Etsy.
