I finished this scarf last night and just love it. Let me know what you think!
It’s foundation pieced on a piece of warm, high-quality flannel and quilted with a brown suit-like fabric.
Want it for your very own? You can purchase it in our Etsy shop!
You will notice that there are a plethora of new scarves on the ElizaLeigh site. But, what you may not know is that some of those scarves are made from recycled materials. And, when you purchase one…you are actually doing something good for the environment!
Of course, I can’t take full credit. Caron Yarns — my absolute favorite for their weight and softness — has just introduced a new like of Eco Yarns. Here is the description from Caron’s site:
Save the planet one stitch at a time!
Every 10 skeins of Simply Soft Eco saves 6 plastic bottles from U.S. landfills. Simply Soft Eco is a yarn from Caron International that blends 80% of normal Simply Soft fiber with 20% of a specially processed fiber produced from recycled plastic bottles.
Simply Soft Eco is soft to the touch, easy to work with and environmentally friendly. It can be used in any pattern that uses worsted-weight yarn. Just like your favorite Simply Soft, Simply Soft Eco is soft and lusterous and creates wonderful knit and crochet projects. An added designer feature of Simply Soft Eco is that a number of colors have flecks randomly dispersed throughout the yarn. These flecks give these colors a unique designer appearance that is usually found only in higher priced yarns.
So make all the throws and sweaters and baby blankets you want and save the planet at the same time!
So, for every scarf created and sold, we are saving one plastic bottle from being thrown into a landfill. How cool is that? Look great and save the planet! Could we really ask for more?
There are two scarves right now that are posted AND made from Caron:
