This wrap is generous in every way. It is long enough and wide enough to be a garment in itself. The fabric is so light that it gives you softness and warmth without bulk. The beautiful natural grey will go anywhere, while the jewel-bright hand-painted patterning is a unique eye-catching detail.
The natural grey comes from yak fibre, which is blended with merino and silk for a lofty and luxurious yarn. The pattern detail is a glossy blend of Blue-faced Leicester and silk, hand-painted with madder and cochineal.
Every piece in the Jazz Festival collection is individually woven in a unique combination of hand-dyed yarns. There will never be another wrap like yours.
This wrap is 42 cm wide x 197 cm long (or approximately 16.5 x 78 inches). The fringe adds approx 15 cm (6 inches) at each end.
To prolong the beauty and brightness of your naturally dyed handwoven scarf, please have a look at this care information.
I named this design November Rhythms because I wanted to capture the inner glow that comes from listening to live jazz in cold weather. Each piece has a unique patterned band with a syncopated rhythm.
Dundee’s jazz festival is held in the late autumn, when the weather can be either very, very cold or very, very damp. In other words, it’s an occasion for late nights and warm clothing! One year I found myself walking out of a concert into a hard frost, wrapping my handwoven scarf around me. It was a lively blend of purple, orange and gold, and I had the thought: this is the perfect colour palette for live jazz. The idea for my ongoing Jazz Festival collection was born.
