Sweet gum is one of my favorite trees, probably because I had a huge one I would climb in my back yard growing up. I love how each leaf looks like it’s own special star. The brown prints on the white background make for a wonderfully neutral wool scarf, sure to go with just about any outfit. Due to the nature of eco printing, each print will be slightly different in color, texture and placement, though I do my best to recreate each look.
The purchase of this listing is for one colored medium printed scarf with the following specifications:
Measurements: Approx. 86 inches long by 12 inches wide
Print: Sweet Gum
Colors: White and Brown
Eco printing scarves is a time-honored tradition in which high quality undyed merino wool is tightly bound with natural materials to create a striking imprint. The sweet gum leaf dyes are released only after the tightly bundled wool is expertly steamed, or boiled, for hours. Once this process is complete, the wool is unbound, the leaves removed, and the wool scarf cures for one week. Each of these scarves are then rinsed and ironed to ensure the designs remain in place but due to the handcrafted nature of this process, no two wool scarves will ever be the same.
