Long & Skinny Scarf, Dark Solid Red, Extra Soft Thick Crochet Knit Narrow Chunky Bulky Winter Women's 100% Acrylic Neck Scarf, Ready to Ship in 3 Days
Women's Extra Long & Narrow Dark Solid Red Scarf, 92"" x 2.75" x 1/2" Soft, Warm, Chunky, and Cozy Red Scarf hand-crocheted with a high quality acrylic yarn. Because of the cuddly softness, the scarf is incredibly comfortable and feels wonderful against the skin. The color is a few shades darker than a primary red...approaching a maroon, but not quite that dark. The pictures don't do this yarn justice...it looks more beautiful in person. I crocheted this scarf with two strands of an already bulky yarn, so the thickness is about 1/2 inch. Using two strands not only makes for a bulkier and warmer scarf, it also gives the scarf a wonderful cushion-y feel. The Charisma brand of yarn is perfect for winter: it's considered a bulky yarn (thicker than normal strand) but is still very airy and lightweight, providing tons of warmth without heaviness. It's 100% acrylic and extremely soft, so no concern about itchiness whatsoever! (: COLOR OPTIONS: I'm now offering this scarf in various colors, all from the Charisma line of yarn. Until Aftcra acquires more selling features, it's best to message me about available colors and I can email photos or send links to some of my other listings that show colors within a certain range. (: Yarn Content: 100% Acrylic Yarn Brand: Charisma Yarn Label Color: Red Approximate Length: 92 inches/233 cm Approximate Width: 2.75 inches/7 cm Thickness: 1/2 inch/1.2 cm This yarn is 100% soft acrylic, so no itchiness. It’s long enough to be wrapped a few times around the neck. It's a very warm winter scarf when worn as it is in the first photo. CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Can be washed in cool on a delicate cycle and dried in dryer on low setting. However, I recommend either hand-washing in cold water and laying flat to dry, or washing on a gentle cycle in a lingerie bag and drying only a few minutes in the dryer. The gentler washing & drying prevents the yarn from frizzing over time. Avoid washing with heavier garments that cause friction. If using washing machine, avoid washing with items that have zippers, buttons, etc that may snag the yarn loops and pull on them or make the yarn fray. Note: All yarns come with some degree of "factory residue" that makes the yarn feel a little stiff. This will disappear with normal handling and/or the first wash, bringing out the true softness of the yarn. U.S. SHIPPING: I keep shipping to a minimum and offer First Class Package as the best value for price & speed. For multiple orders, I often use Priority Mail. For Ready to Ship items, I'll ship within two business days. For items made to order, I'll ship as soon as I have the scarf finished (within the time-frame stated in the listing title). I use the PayPal/USPS integrated shipping system whenever possible, so you will be provided with a delivery confirmation number by email from Aftcra and/or PayPal. Most First Class packages take two to five days to be delivered. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I always combine shipping for multiple orders. I most commonly use USPS First Class International for shipping outside of the US. First Class International may take a longer time to arrive than other services, but it's much more affordable than Priority International (which usually runs $25 or more for a few ounces). Delivery time for international packages is usually 5 to 15 business days. Customs, bad weather, or national holidays can sometimes slow down a package with the occasional shipment taking around 30 days to arrive. This only happens to about 5% of my international shipments. (: In the last four years, USPS has raised prices significantly for First Class International, in some cases more than doubling the amount they used to charge before 2013. On a positive note, as part of that price increase, they include tracking and delivery confirmation as part of the First Class service for almost all the countries I ship to. To keep shipping costs down, I will use lightweight polymer shipping envelopes as often as possible. For multiple items, I may find a cardboard box is best. International Buyers Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. PAYMENTS: I accept PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, you will still be able to pay with a credit or debit card through PayPal. You can also pay from your bank account using an E-check (also through the PayPal system), but I won't be able to ship until the check has cleared, PayPal says it's okay to ship and allows me to print out a label. RETURNS: For now, I am not accepting returns, but am completely open to resolving any problems that may occur. I feel the best strategy is to head off any problems before they even happen. If you have any questions whatsoever about any items I am selling, please ask. Thanks for looking! (:
