We have woven the Garsdale Scarf from our finest yarn — the Bluefaced Leicester 14. With its semi-lustrous qualities, this wool weaves a beautiful cloth with a slight sheen which just oozes quality. Lightweight but remarkably warm, the Garsdale Scarf is generously wide and long.
Our yarn is spun from the fleece of sheep farmed in the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria. Two of these farms are located in beautiful Garsdale, a long narrow dale that runs between the two market towns of Sedbergh and Hawes. At its easternmost end is Garsdale Station on the spectacular Settle-Carlisle railway. To the north is Baugh Fell, rising to a height of 678m and the source of the River Clough which once powered the looms at Farfield Mill.
This lovely scarf is available in 7 serene colours, all inspired by the muted tones of moorland, northern skies and the occasional splash of astonishingly bright colour in the local wildflowers:
