“Time, time, time, see what’s become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won’t you stop and remember me
At any convenient time
Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime

Look around, leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground…”

~ Hazy shade of winter by Simon and Garfunkel

This breezy and loose scarf is made with the cobweb felting technique which also involves soapy water, wool and a lot of patience! Most of its parts are transparent with some small holes thus creating a spider net look. This is the fascinating part about the cobweb felt which makes it unique.

For the scarf were used three very thin layers of light blue, brown and white extra-fine merino wool from Australia and South America. Additionally a large quantity of mulberry silk threads again in light blue were used in order to offer a shiny effect which adopts different hues depending on the natural light.

For the scarf were used three very thin layers of light blue, brown and white extra-fine merino wool from Australia and South America. Additionally a large quantity of mulberry silk threads again in light blue were used in order to offer a shiny effect which adopts different hues depending on the natural light.

It measures approximately 173 cm (68.1 in) length and 19-46 cm (7.5 -18.1 in) width. It is a bit narrower in the middle in order to be wrapped better around the neck and more than once and on the edges is wider giving the impression of a butterfly! Its surface is uneven depending on the distribution of wool and silk! Where the wool is in larger quantity the surface becomes smooth and dull, where the silk prevails the texture becomes irregular and ruffle however shiny!

Its transparent surface allows the colour of your top to be partly visible and combined with a contrasting colour can give an enchanting effect! It feels soft and smooth and it looks airy and dreamy like walking in the… hazy shade of winter!

As all scarves made by QaraQul also this one is a unique piece!
