Scarf of the Week: Yellow Infinity Scarf

I did something different for this week’s scarf of the week — an infinity scarf. These are made as one loop which can be draped around the neck once or twice depending on whether you want as longer or shorter look. As usual, this one was handwoven by me ona  rigid heddle loom. The dominant color is yellow but it is made in sections so one part has more dark green, another pink and another a more golden yellow shade. I also left a fringe and gave it some decorative buttons to this scarf has a lot of eye appeal.  $36 plus S/H. Contact me or visit my Etsy shop to order.

“Scarf” of the Week: Golden Yellow Poncho

This week’s “scarf of the week” is not a scarf at all but one of my super warm woven ponchos. This one is a vibrant golden yellow. It can be worn with the fringe falling along the sides, giving the poncho a squarer look in front, or across the chest and back. Sizing on these shawls is flexible but I am calling this one a women’s M-XL. $80. Contact me or visit my Etsy shop to order. You can see all my available shawls and ponchos here.

It’s hard to sum up this scarf because, though the colors are not overly bright, it has a lot going on.
