The colours and patterning of this scarf reflect bluebunch wheatgrass on the plain in the evening sun.

The finished scarf measures a generous 72”/ 183cm long and 14”/ 35.5cm wide, making it wearable wrapped over the neck or draped over the shoulders. The elegant handpainted silk blend gives an airy drape which is finished with tassels.
