Natural Wool Scarves
While at the Fibre Art Faire, I worked up a few scarves using Icelandic wool roving from a local fiber processor, the Argyle Fiber Mill, in Argyle, Wisconsin. These scarves, like my vibrant colored ones, use about an ounce of wool, so are light and airy to wear. The wool is not dyed but rather the natural color of the sheep, so the scarves have gorgeous muted tones of ivory, browns, and grays. Never having been dyed means the wool fibers have not been damaged by the chemicals in the dyes and are very soft and smooth. These scarves have a luxurious feel that makes you feel pampered and special when you wear them.
