SCARF INVENTORY DEC. 2019

This is my CURRENT INVENTORY 
after the Edmonds Gift Show
Including 7 NEW ITEMS  that were not ready in time for the show.
8 of these Tencel scarves and cowls are now going to Red Sky Gallery in Lake Forest Park. 


TENCEL SCARVES
Tencel is an environmentaly friendly fiber made from wood pulp. It is easy-care, soft, silky, kind to the skin, and has a lovely sheen.  


Statement from Teresa Ruch about her yarns which I use in several of my scarves: This tencel is imported from Canada and dyed in my Oregon Studio. It is made by pulping hard wood into a slurry and extruding it through a chemical which hardens the fibers so they can be gathered and spun into yarns. The chemical is then recaptured and reused. The wood is from trees that grow in poor soil with very little water and is considered an environmentally friendly product.
