The warp of this scarf is dyed with cochineal producing two shades, one of purple and one of pink. The weft is a commercial 100 percent wool yarn, which has a thick, lofty and traditional wool feel. The length is 96 inches (including the hand twisted fringe) and an 8 inch width. The scarf is woven with 100 percent wool yarns. The loftiness of the weft yarn creates a pixelated visual with the warp yarn. The length of the scarf makes it appropriate for wearing twisted around the neck (as pictured) or wearing at it's full length outside other garments. Although it is made of wool the twill weave structure makes for a lighter wear and this scarf can be worn in most seasons as well as tied tightly for warmth in the winter.
