100% Reclaimed Cashmere Scarf in Shades of Blue

where sophistication meets bohemian,
...where consumerism meets environmentalism
....where luxury meets affordability
.....where east coast chic meets west coast grunge
......where comfort meets ... bliss!
reclaiming the earth through cashmere...

100% cashmere reclaimed from sweaters
colors:  shades of blue
scarf is 4 1/2" wide and is double layer - no unfinished edges showing!

Although it may look like it is constructed from sleeves, the sleeves on most sweaters are not wide enough.  To make a scarf that is consistently 4 1/2" wide, use 5" wide panels from the front and backs of sweaters.  Sew the short sides of the rectangles together so that you have one long strip that is 5" wide.  Then fold in half and stitch up the long side, leaveing the ends open to turn the scarf right side out.  Turn it right side out.  Hand stitch the ends shut.  Iron it flat with an iron on wool setting and high steam.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Haute Goat Cashmere
