Charleston Indigo Scarf

7.00


Charleston, South Carolina is a beautiful city, full of history, bridges, flowers, and beaches. This scarf features “gull wing” lace along the sides to capture the joy of living near the ocean, and a twist stitch pattern down the middle inspired by majestic bridges and historic architecture. The drop stitch pattern on each end gives the feeling of fringe without all the fuss.

Knit in a practical 100% cotton yarn that has been lovingly hand-dyed in a vat of natural indigo on the site of a former indigo plantation near Charleston, this scarf is a gorgeous way to capture some of the immense charm of the city ranked the No.1 Tourist Destination in America by Condé Nast.
