The Waterfall Scarf is a shibori construction made with very specific yarns. The piece is knit in its entirety, then felted to achieve ruffling and dimension. Unlike conventional felting, your piece will actually grow in length and width as opposed to shrinking. Only the felting fiber (Sanctuary) will shrink, while the non-felting fiber (Silken Straw) will grow.
We do not recommend any fiber substitutions, to achieve desired effect of this garment.
