Large & Bulky Dark Solid Red INFINITY LOOP COWL SCARF, 74" x 8"
Soft, Warm, and Thick Infinity Scarf hand-crocheted with a high quality acrylic/wool blend yarn. Even though the yarn is categorized as Super Bulky, it's very lightweight. Since this yarn has such a thick strand, it makes fun & beautiful jumbo-size stitches.
After so many requests for larger scarves, I'm finally making one with the Wool-Ease yarn that I so often use in my shop. This one is made with the same stitches as most of my Wool-Ease 62"x5" scarves, but is both longer and wider, using twice as much yarn as the smaller version.
The color is called Cranberry, a basic deep solid red. This yarn is matte (no sheen).
I can make this same style of scarf in any of the other Wool-Ease colors I use. Please message me if you'd like to discuss color options. Until ArtYah offers more features for sellers, it's probably best I email photos of various colors, or message links to some of my other listings within a color range.

This size scarf offers a simple, very easy-to-wear style of infinity scarf. It's meant to be worn as one or two loops, falling in place easily and draping beautifully. It's possible to wear as three loops on smaller sizes, but it may be a snug fit. My mannequin's neck is 12 inches around, and photos 5, 6, & 7 show the scarf on her as three loops.
This scarf is crocheted “in the round” to eliminate any seams. With infinity scarves, the very small area (1/2 inch wide) where I turn to start new rows will always look a little different from the rest of the scarf, but this can always be worn behind the neck, if desired. With this particular scarf, this area blends in nicely. (:
An infinity scarf provides versatility in both fashion and function. When worn closely to the neck, this yarn provides warmth, and the more loops around the neck, the warmer it will become.
An Infinity scarf can be worn in a variety of ways…
--Can be worn at full length as one large loop. This is good for warmer weather or when used purely as a fashion accessory.
--Can be worn as two loops at different lengths for a double scarf look. Pull scarf over head, twist in front into a figure 8, pull loop you’ve just created over your head. Adjust to desired lengths.
--Can be worn as two loops at equal lengths to create a cowl neck.
--You can have one loop around the neck and pull the second loop up over your head, to function as a partial hood.
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.
I normally use USPS First Class for individual scarf orders, but due to the heavier weight of this scarf, I need to use USPS 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 Artyah. Most First Class packages take two to five days to be delivered and Priority normally takes two to three days.
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.
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.
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! (:
