Large Long Wide Blue and White INFINITY SCARF Loop Cowl, Extra Soft Big Crochet Knit Winter Circle Bulky Chunky Neck Wrap, Ready to Ship in 3 to 5 Days
Women's Large Blue and White INFINITY LOOP COWL SCARF, 84" x 8" Extra Soft and Warm Winter Blue & White Infinity 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. I used Homespun yarn - a yarn that has a loosely spun, wavy strand that creates a unique texture and appearance. The color in the photos is called Delft and includes a soft white with shades of light and medium blues. Homespun yarn has a subtle sheen. Yarn: 98% Acrylic/2% Polyester Yarn Brand: Lion Brand Homespun Yarn Label Color: Delft (white with shades of blue) Approximate Length (full circumference unstretched): 84 inches/213 cm Approximate Width: 8 inches/20 cm Thickness: 1/4 inch/.6 cm Weight: 11 oz/ 315g This scarf is an extra wide version of my usual Homespun infinity scarf -- about twice the width of many of my others. This yarn contains NO wool, so no itchiness. It’s long enough to be worn as one, two, or three loops. Three loops will transform it into a cozy neck warmer/bulky cowl. This particular scarf is a compromise between a narrow and extra wide bulky scarf: it's comprised of a lot of warm crocheted fabric while still draping and moving easily because of the 1/4 inch thickness. This scarf is crocheted “in the round” to eliminate any seams. With infinity scarves, the very small area (1/2 inch wide) where I turn to start new rows will always look a little different from the rest of the scarf, but this can always be worn behind the neck, if desired. With this particular scarf, it's very hard to find. (: An infinity scarf provides versatility in both fashion and function. When worn closely to the neck, this yarn provides warmth, and the more loops around the neck, the warmer it will become. Simply put, the amount of warmth & insulation provided depends purely on the way it’s worn. An Infinity scarf can be worn in a variety of ways… --Can be worn at full length as one large loop. --Can be worn as two loops at different lengths for a double scarf look. Pull scarf over head, twist in front into a figure 8, pull loop you’ve just created over your head. Adjust to desired lengths. --Can be worn as two loops at equal lengths to create a cowl neck. --Can be worn as three loops to create a snug neck warmer or bulky cowl -- great option for cold weather. --This wider style of scarf can also be worn over the head -- the easiest way to do this is loop two or three times around your neck then take one of the loops from the back of the neck and pull over head, creating a scarf/ear warmer combo. 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 and silkiness of the yarn. U.S. SHIPPING: I usually use USPS First Class Package, but due to the heavier weight and size of this scarf, I'll be using USPS 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 PayPal and/or Aftcra. Most First Class packages take two to five days to be delivered, and Priority Mail normally takes two to three days. 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. Thanks for looking! (:
