This lively scarf has two different faces for two different looks. One side is a fresh orange, while the other is a warm brown with a hint of pink. It makes me think of chocolate, though other confectionery choices are available!
The warp yarn in this scarf is a luxurious blend of Merino and silk, while the weft yarn includes yak fibre as well for exceptional softness and warmth. The warp yarn is dyed with madder and the weft with madder and cochineal. The band of waterfall-inspired pattern is created using a double layer of finer Merino/silk yarns dyed with pomegranate and madder.
Every Linn scarf in the Flow collection is individually woven in a unique combination of hand-dyed yarns. There will never be another scarf like yours.
This scarf is 22 cm wide x 160 cm long (or approximately 8.5 x 63 inches). The fringe adds approx 9 cm (3.5 inches) at each end.

‘Linn’ is a local word for waterfall, and I’ve named this design for the Reekie Linn in Glen Isla, which is an impressive sight in full spate. It is surprisingly accessible – just a short walk from the road – and in an area otherwise dominated by fields and farms. I planned my design to incorporate calm plains of solid colour broken by a riot of pattern, in celebration of the Isla’s unexpectedly deep gorge and fast-flowing waters.
