The Scarlett snood from the Collection Colors of Me is made from hand-dyed wool and gives a springtime breath in winter. Although it is patterned, it suits everyone, it also cheers every winter outfit. There are not two identical snoods! The yarn has been hand dyed in Peru by a spotting method, so each of its skeins is unique. I divided them into two shades: more vivid and more pastel, which should be ticked when ordering.
The snood is hand-knitted from chunky Peruvian wool, which perfectly warms-up on cooler or freezing days, while being airy. It is double-sided, so it allows you to freely roll up and stack, although it works the best by itself. You can put it on a stand-up collar or fold it to better wrap your neck.
How to care for Peruvian wool?
- One of the advantages of pure wool is that it does not absorb odors – it is recommended to ventilate the product instead of washing (read more about wool properties)
- In necessity of washing:
- Soak in lukewarm water with a small amount of detergent for wool
- Gently knead
- After a while, rinse in lukewarm water
- Do not wrink it
- Do not rub
- Remove excess water by rolling into a towel
- Dry flat on a towel shaping the form
- Do not iron
- Can be cleaned chemically.
Note: I try to take pictures that best represent the actual color of the product, while its shades may vary depending on a monitor and a device. None of the white/natural wools is optically white due to the natural shade of the fiber that falls in the ecru.
