This is a fun felted bacon scarf. The loose red, pink, and white merino wool has been welt felted with warm, soapy water and agitated to hold its shape. Nothing is sewn, knitted, or crocheted in this piece, though I did use needle felting to reinforce some spots. (Technically, knitting or crocheting something and then felting is called fulling.) It is a bumpy rectangle bacon shape, and it measures approximately 41” x 9.5” at its narrowest near the middle and 11” at its widest near the ends. It looks like a real slice of bacon, with all the striations of fat and meat. The pictures don't do it justice. If you want, e-mail me and I will try to send you better pictures. It’s like wearing a delicious, delicious work of art! I kind of don’t want to sell it, but I know I can’t prevent it from fulfilling its felted destiny.

Seriously, do a search on “bacon scarf” and look at the other bacon scarves out there. They use a paltry two colors, and they don’t look as realistic as this! Also, those scarves didn’t take hours to make by hand! This literally took me hours. I am so proud of it!

The merino wool is 21.5 micron, quite luxurious and wonderful to wear next to the skin. I was going for a flexible, soft scarf, so this is not the scarf you want to wear to keep you from freezing. It’s more of a fall and spring scarf, but two out of four seasons means more opportunities to wear this than just the winter!

This scarf comes from a household with cats, although the cats were not permitted to wear the scarf. If you absolutely have to wash this scarf, use cold, soapy water. Lay it flat on a towel to air dry.

Free shipping! I will have to check out international shipping, so ask me first before ordering. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. I am also open to custom work, so if you like this piece but it's not quite what you want, let me know! I have many different colors of wool and I welcome requests and challenges!

You know, you probably shouldn't buy anything from me because I'm just going to use the money to buy more wool.
