Jade Green Handwoven Mohair Scarf
We love the Jade Green Handwoven Mohair Scarf for its incorporation of shades of jade, evergreen and chartreuse. Reminiscent of the bold colored Nantucket Looms scarves produced in the 1970's, the Jade Green Scarf is a reminder of the days of yore. Woven in the same twill weave pattern since 1968 by our skilled local weavers, it’s the perfect cool-weather accessory and a timeless piece of Nantucket for your wardrobe.
Each brushed mohair scarf we create is designed and handcrafted in our Main Street studio. Incredibly luxurious yet practical, mohair is naturally hypoallergenic, with exquisite luster, softness and breathability. Beautiful and purposeful. Completed with hand-knotted fringe.
12" W x 72" L
80% Brushed Mohair
For a thorough clean, dry clean only.
Spot clean with water and gentle detergent. Gently dab spot, do not rub.
For a simple refresh, a little time in the fresh air will breathe new life into your beloved wrap. Mohair has a natural wicking, protecting the fiber from moisture and other elements and allowing air to breathe through. Leave your throw draped on a clothesline for an afternoon and enjoy a refluffed & revived blanket.
Crafted by hand from start to finish in our Main Street weaving studio.
Our masterful artisans begin by thoughtfully selecting colors and fibers inspired by our surrounding landscape, then determine a pattern and desired weave structure for their design.
Next they wind the fiber onto bobbins then wind the loom’s warp, a meticulously calculated process that sets the path of each and every thread used. These threads are manually connected to specific harnesses and securely hand-tied to “dress the loom”. Once this stage is complete, they can begin to weave.
Countless passes of the shuttle commence, rhythmic, muted sounds of wooden pedals fill the studio and a beautiful textile begins to emerge. The handwoven process continues until the piece reaches its full length, at which point it is cut from the loom. Tassels are hand-knotted onto the ends, and a small label is hand-sewn onto the textile as the weaver’s final touch.
