This scarf was programmed, industrially machine knit, and hand finished, and hand steamed, all in Seattle, WA. The yarn used is a hand wash or dry clean only 100% merino wool from Zegna Baruffa called "Cashwool". It doesn't have any cashmere (or cash) in it, but it's an extremely soft 100% merino wool. Zegna Baruffa is an Italian yarn manufacturer and they source this merino wool from Australia. This yarn makes a scarf with a lot of drape (the opposite of stiffness). This is a different merino than our Kickstarter run of elementary cellular automata scarves. It's even softer and a thinner gauge of yarn so the scarf is a lot less stiff than our usual merino. These are a limited edition item knit in small batches. We only have one scarf in this particular color combination, so once it's gone, it's gone. In the images with multiple colors of scarves, this scarf is the one on the right in each image. Note that the turquoise color may not appear the same on all monitors or phones. The colors are a bright turquoise and light grey.

This scarf is fully reversible, with the opposite colors on the back from the front. 7 inches wide by 77 inches long. Hand wash or dry clean only. This is a finished item that is ready to ship. Ships on 11/30/17. Please note that we can't estimate how long this item will take to get through customs for orders outside of the USA. $20 from the proceeds of this scarf will go to PSKS, a local Seattle shelter for youth experiencing homelessness.
