IN BEAUTIFUL NATURAL FIBERS:

- ALPACA - harvested from alpaca animals, light or heavy in weight, depending on how it is spun. Soft, durable, luxurious and silky. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. At home on small farms throughout the US, especially the Rocky Mountains and Foothills. http://etsy.me/20GGiYA

- CASHMERE - fine in texture, strong, light and soft, providing excellent insulation, approximately three times that of sheep wool. http://etsy.me/1NQgzbk

- COTTON - plant based, soft, breathable. http://etsy.me/1P6ou3H

- MOHAIR - a silk-like yarn made from the hair of the Angora goat. Both durable and resilient, mohair is notable for its high luster and sheen. Frequently used to accent other fibers. http://etsy.me/1mdcQtz

- SILK - a natural protein fiber, produced from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm. The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism-like fibre, which allows silk refract light. Silk is strong, supple, and frequently used to balance other natural fibers. http://etsy.me/1QGc3MA

- WOOL - wool has greater bulk than other textiles, and holds air, which retains heat and absorb moisture. Wool absorbs and holds dye beautifully, and has been keeping us warm since before the 12th century. http://etsy.me/1Phb3fh

FOR MEN AND WOMEN, SHORT AND TALL:

- SCARVES FOR MEN - Men who are natty dressers will like many of the scarves from the Studio. More conservative men wear scarves for warmth and like them to be reversible, in neutral colors, knit in unfussy, repetitive all-over patterns. http://etsy.me/1o6fX86

- EXTRA LONG SCARVES - Manufactured scarves are often too short which is disappointing every time you wear it. Many of the scarves on the Studio are over 70 inches and therefore 'extra long' to allow for extra wrapping for all of us, and the warmth of those who are long or tall. http://etsy.me/1hdeJUR

- SHORT, PETITE or SMALL FRAME or for those who prefer a simple neck drape or minimal wrapping - 45-58" long. http://etsy.me/1PUBYTQ

About the Studio at Red Top Ranch: Red Top Ranch is the southwestern Nebraska home of a rural family, 3 rescued dogs and one fiber artist. At the heart of the Studio is a love of nature, outdoors, the West and winter. Scarves, shawls and rag rugs are made using the traditional hand-crafted methods of our frontier grandmothers.
