This is a thick and chunky scarf handwoven from 20 or more different yarns. The scarves in this Omaha range were inspired by a winter walk down Omaha Beach north of Auckland and evoke soft pink seashells, black and white shellfish, and the greens and blues of the ocean.
Many types of fibre can be found in these scarves: cotton, wool, silk, alpaca, polyester, acrylic, sequins, lurex, satin ribbon, mohair. They are filled with texture and hidden bling.
In this case an Omaha Tweed scarf contains around 2km (@ 1.25 miles) of yarn. As each yard of yarn is handled at least five times, these scarves are the absolute definition of hand made. They are only created in limited quantities so don't miss out!

If it’s made by hand, wash it by hand. To look after your hand-woven item, hand-wash it in cool water with a gentle detergent. You could machine wash it in a wash-bag on a cold, delicate cycle but as each washing machine varies, the safest bet is hand-washing. Dry it flat or draped over a clothes horse, then press when still damp with a warm iron.
Woven in Rothesay Bay
