Tan, orange, purple silk and wool scarf by Judith Scott Upcycling
Tan, orange, purple silk ties and wool suiting are reimagined in this infinity scarf handcrafted for a Melbourne winter eco-friendly wardrobe!
The silk and wool –
- silk is adds elegance to any outfit
- these tans, oranges, and purples bring out the best in each other and by this woollen suiting
- silk is soft and gorgeous and luxurious
- as silk is the strongest natural fibre, it is ideal in an infinity scarf
- the thermal qualities of silk and wool are perfect for our Melbourne winters
The sustainability –
- handcrafted from upcycled silk ties and a men’s woollen jacket
- silk ties are made from the best quality silk, the jacket was made from superfine Australian wool – why waste these natural fibres?
- #saynoto landfill
The practicalities –
- Easy to style – just loop it over your head twice (it measures approx 140cm in length)
- An infinity scarf does not slip off in a wild wintery wind!
