I have friends and family who are allergic to wool, so I decided to create a line of hats and scarves for others who might also not be able to wear wool. This scarf is 100% acrylic and won't bother your allergies.It is knit from super-bulky yarn, using a pattern I perfected on an earlier super-bulky scarf called Birch Bark. But Birch Bark has wool in it, so I thought I'd chase up some yarn that was super-bulky Acrylic - and this is what I found. It is bright and colorful and will cheer you up on the coldest, greyest days, and the super-bulky yarn gives it great texture. There is another super-bulky acrylic scarf in lavender and grey, called "Lavender Alert".It is 52 inches long, and 9 inches wide.
