This is not a tutorial, I only want to show how I transformed fiber into wearable accessory.
For a long time now, I was trying to create something special, my scarves and shawls are pretty, I like to use fine materials, I see the scarves and the shawls as accessories to style up your wardrobe, meaning the accessory (scarf, hat or shawl ) should be made of excellent material (fiber), and well made. The fine material will show off when the item is done, it could be in the shine of the fiber, or the softness, or the color and sometimes all of these characteristic are in one item; reason I used alpaca fiber, angora, Italian acrylic, and artisan yarns.
I started to think what to do for summer, taking in consideration people does not use yarn scarves on Summer, however people uses cotton shawls, then I started putting everything together, and I thought what about to make summer scarves made of cotton yarn, but doing something complete different. I created a new line called Summer scarves “THE BOHEMIAN” where I used besides the yarn, other fibers including fabric.
The body of the scarf was crocheted using cotton and the uniqueness of the item, it’s the embellishment using different types of fibers including fabric of beautiful colors.
