Fine Merino Wool scarf by Sarah Tyssen capturing colours of Autumn to wear and keep you warm on those chilly days. Sarah designs each scarf on a 16 shaft Louet Megado dobby loom in her Surrey workshop, for production (mostly in limited editions of up to 12 of each colour) on a power loom in a Yorkshire mill.
Sarah works almost exclusively in wool, which is a natural, sustainable, renewable, hard wearing, bio-degradable, and therefore a compostable resource.It is naturally flame retardant, wicks away moisture, is temperature regulating and naturally hypoallergenic. The natural oils in wool make it water repellant, insulating, stain resistant, and anti static…and it is therefore perfect for wearing next to the skin and for soft furnishings.
Wool from the Merino sheep is super fine and has a long 'staple', making it resistant to 'pilling' and super soft.
Sarah uses Australian Merino lambswool because the climate in the southern hemisphere produces the best, high quality soft fleeces…and it is absolutely lovely to work with. The sheep are raised on high welfare farms, certified by The Woolmark Company. Sarah is also a supporter of The Campaign For Wool.
