A handwoven looped scarf in 100% wool by Belfast maker Nicola Gates. The textural, weave is inspired by birch woods in winter - Beith is the Irish word for birch. "Glimpses of stark white uprights interspersed with the deep reddish glow of the tips of the trees; a memory captured on a journey home from the beautiful Glenveagh area of County Donegal." 

Available in a choice of three beautiful colours; charcoal, raspberry or lilac, the handwoven cloth incorporates authentic Donegal yarn with its distinctive homespun texture. The design has been drafted on paper, then woven on a traditional floor loom, powered entirely by hand and foot. The cloth is then carefully stitched and finished. Made in small batches in Nicola's studio in the Cavehill area of Belfast.

Wool care: basic care of this wool scarf is include on the swing tag. Nicola has included an in-depth guide to caring for wool over on her website here.
