The unique pattern you see is created by the Japanese tie dye technique, Shibori, and is tie dyed in a way to replicate an animal hide. Color is removed instead of added giving the color its natural ombre. Made of 100% boiled wool. Easy to wear, this long scarf can be worn draped over the shoulders or tied close to the neck as wool retains body heat extremely well. A great compliment to leather as well as any winter attire.
