Street Smart Scarf
In Sara Goldenberg’s Street Smart scarf, from Handwoven Loom Theory: Rigid-Heddle Scarf Collection, she combines color-and-weave with just a bit of pick-up to create a scarf that is thoroughly modern, completely classic, and wonderfully warm. Pair it with your everyday get-up, wear it to work, or use it as the perfect accessory for a fancy night out. Sara’s scarf is made from 100% New Zealand wool, so whenever you choose to wear it, you can be assured that it will be scrumptiously soft and wonderfully warm. What’s not to love about a scarf like that? Here’s what Sara had to say about her design.
Designer Sara Goldenberg’s Statement
With neutral colors and a geometric form that will go with almost anything, this scarf is meant for daily wear. Wool is a great fiber to keep out the chill of fall and winter days, and this scarf will do just that! Ashford’s Tekapo 100% New Zealand Wool comes in a variety of colors and weights. The solid colors pair well for color-and-weave projects that pop. The floats cause different color-and-weave patterns on the front and back—always a fun surprise!
