Not just another feather & fan scarf, Shimmy has hard turns and ribbons of eyelets in multiple colors. It’s perfect wrapped once or twice, to keep away the winter chill. Shown in 5 colors, it would work beautifully in a solid, self-striping or multi-striped to use up odds & ends. With a bit of swatching and math you could vary the weight of the yarn to suit your stash and climate.
