Dark Solid Green Winter Cowl Scarf, Color Options, Women's Extra Soft Short Wide Crochet Knit Acrylic Circle Scarf, Ready to Ship In 3 Days
Dark Green Winter Cowl, 30" x 8" x 3/8" Extra Soft Dark Solid Green Winter Cowl 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 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 warmth without heaviness. It's 100% acrylic, extremely soft and cushion-y, so no concern about itchiness whatsoever! (: The color in the photos is called Forest, a very dark solid green. This color can easily be considered a military green. This cowl is meant to be very easy to wear: just slip over your head and adjust to your liking. In some of the photos I have the cowl's top and bottom edges folded in a little. I can make this same style of cowl in any of the other Charisma yarn colors. If you'd like another color, please send me a message. Yarn Content: 100% Acrylic Yarn Brand: Loops & Thread Charisma Yarn Label Color: Forest (dark green) Approximate Length (full circumference unstretched): 30 inches/ 76 cm Approximate Width: 8 inches/20 cm Thickness: 3/8 inch/.8 cm Weight: 3.5 oz / 100g The pattern is my own design and is a combination of stitches crocheted as one continuous loop. It's crocheted "in the round" to eliminate a seam (with most infinity and cowl scarves, the area where I turn to start a new row is often slightly noticeable, but this part of the cowl can be worn behind the neck, if desired). 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 PayPal and/or Aftcra. 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! (:
