Sorry, this item sold. Have SachaKay make something just for you, or try these other items:
The hood has a fashionable slouchy look when on the head and a nice round look when hanging on the back, while the scarf's length makes it possible to let it either hang loose or tie it. A hooded scarf is the new classic fashion accessoire!
The yarn is a very rich warm grey blend of Alpaca (25%), Merino wool (50%) and Acrylic (25%).
The color... The yarn's producer calls it 'beige'. But I'd say it's more tending towards a greyish off-white. Yet it isn't. My mannequin in the 4th and 5th picture is black. Take that as a comparison for the color of this hooded scarf. :)
"Merino is one of the softest types of wool available and is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin.
Alpaca fleece is a lustrous and silky natural fiber. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and bears no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. (source: Wikipedia)"
You're gonna catch some eyes while wearing this Sacha Kay original design.
The length of the scarf is approx. a stunning 77" [1m95] (including the hooded part, without fringes, without stretching)
The width is approx. 8" [20 cm]
The Beanie has been knit to fit most adults.
I've machine-washed (on wool-cycle) another item, knit with this yarn and it came out fine. But if you prefer to stay on the safe side, you can handwash it on a low temperature. Always lay flat to dry after washing. Never ever attack a knit item with an iron, it will instantly loose it's shape!
This garment will loosen up by wearing, since it hasn't been treated (not blocked) after knitting.
