Fair Isle Cowl Scarf with Removable Flower Pin by Purpleandlime's Shop


Stay warm and look fabulous this coming autumn! So I took a Fair Isle sweater that I loved but was too small on me, repurposed it...and voila! The material is in the prettiest shades of: turquoise, purple, cream, and green. The fabric consists of: 35% acrylic, 28% nylon, 20% lambs wool, 12% rayon, and 5% angora rabbit hair (whew!). The cowl measures about 28" around and 6" high. The scarf is slightly asymmetrical in the way that it's been cut and the edges sewn up.
For the month of September 15% from this sale will go to help the rescued chimps at MONA in Spain (http://www.mona-uk.org). They save chimps and other primates that were in private homes or the "entertainment" industry.
