Verdigris Extreme Fringe ScarfThis scarf is another Split Rock Ranch One-of-A-Kind Original Design creation. The base scarf is handspun from a merino/bamboo fiber blend batt purchased from Hanks in the Hood and spun by Brenda Vance at Split Rock Ranch. The merino/bamboo yarn was plied with a viscose thread in a gorgeous copper color. The fringe is tailspun yarn handspun by Esther at JazzTurtle Designs using some gorgeous long Teeswater wool locks. Tailspinning is an extremely labor intensive spinning technique that results in some stunning extreme lock yarn with a price tag that reflects the time and effort involved. Teeswater sheep originated in The United Kingdom and are relatively rare in the United States. It takes a couple of years growth to reach the long staple length so the price tag on the Teeswater long locks is higher than that of more common shorter staple length fibers. The Extreme Fringe Scarf is a unique accessory designed and created by Brenda Vance at Split Rock Ranch. The first Extreme Fringe Scarf was designed in the summer of 2010 and sold immediately. Each scarf is a unique creation that will not be repeated. While the design is similar, each scarf is customized around the fibers used to create it.

Or, wrap around your neck to create a neck warmer or cowl. However you decide to wear this unique piece of fiber art, you will have lots of compliments and comments on it!
