Lots of Drama in the branching Brioche of this cowl / ring scarf - just the thing to keep your neck warm. 

Ring scarves / cowls are great - you pop them over your head and they cannot fall off. This one is 70cm around by 16cm wide - lovingly knitted to my own design and pattern with a travelling, branching Brioche stitch. Brioche knitting uses 2 yarns and when those yarns are different colours you get 2 versions from the 2 sides - for this cowl one side has the dark grey dominant - the other side has the hand-spun red to orange to grey yarn dominant. The double yarn makes Brioche knits doubly warm, yet it is very squishy and soft. This Cowl scarf is totally unique. 

One of the 2 yarns is a commercial - machine made yarn the other is hand-spun (by me). The commercial yarn is the dark charcoal grey - it is 100% cashmere.

The light grey ombre to orange & red yarn is hand spun from a blend of luxury fibres - Merino, Cashmere, Angora, semi-synthetic from Rose bushes, Silk, Rare Sheep Breeds (Shetland, Icelandic & Flemish) and some Angelina (that's manmade - and it's twinkly threads, they don't photograph well but there are little twinkles sparkling in the yarn).

If you are looking for items that are Made by Hand - honouring the ideals of Slow Fashion - you have come to the right place. My hand-knits from yarn I've hand-spun are Extremely Hand Made. 

The hand-spun yarn has gone through my hands 7 times ... 7 processes by hand. The fibre has also been processed by Hand before it comes to me. I buy my fibre from an Independent Fibre Artist whose studio is in the Yarra Valley - she:

Processes, Dyes, Cards, Blends the fibre ... all by Hand. 

Then when I get my hands on that lovely fibre I:

Spin it (on a Majacraft spinning wheel)

Ply it (in that spinning wheel)

Skein it

Set it 

Wind it into a ball

Then I Knit it and finally 

Block it (a washing process - so it is beautiful and clean for you).

That's a lot of Hand Made …
