Oregon is home to nearly 400 wineries, most of which are located along the western part of the state where the damp, moderate climate nurtures vines that produce some of the country’s finest pinots. Though some wines are aged in stainless steel or even concrete barrels, most premium wines (especially pinots) are still aged in French oak.

The French Oak Scarf is my nod to the beautiful structure and grain of French oak and its contribution to the delicate flavor profiles of Oregon wines. This scarf is knit with a v-cable that hints at vines (or vino?) within a structured off-set background.

There’s more than one way to wear an off-set scarf -- be creative!
