Big Knit Scarf in re-claimed wool off-cuts from a local menswear designer

 

Big Knit Scarves were conceived as a way to put small left over pieces (of the re-claimed fabric we amassed during our large textile installations) to good use.  Raw material for the scarves are off-cuts of wool suiting , fine cotton shirting, or ends of hand-printed cotton.  We cut down the fabric into strips and sew it end-to-end to create big ‘yarn’, resulting in a one-of-a-kind wearables.
