Ruffle Scarf Sale!

4 Aug

Autumn will be upon us next month – I just love going out for evening strolls and kicking up the leaves.  The sunsets are always more beautiful at that time of year and the colours of the leaves are amazing.

In order to celebrate the changing of the season and cooler nights approaching, I’ve decided to have a Ruffle Scarf Sale!  For the rest of August my ruffle scarves will be marked down by 20%!

These ruffle scarves are 100% acrylic which makes them soft and slightly stretchy.  They come in a range of vibrant colours and the ruffles create a lovely texture.  In addition to full length scarves, I also have a number of shorter scarflettes which come with their own coordinating scarf pin.

All of my ruffle scarves have been automatically reduced by 20% until midnight on 31st August (GMT), so there’s no need to worry about entering coupon codes – the hard work has already been done for you.

These ruffle scarves also make wonderful gifts for Christmas, so head on over to my Ruffle Scarf collection in my Etsy shop!

Ruffle Scarf Sale!

15 Feb

I’ve gone a little overboard with the knitting over the last few months and find myself with a cupboard exploding with ruffle scarves in a rainbow of colours!

Seems to me like the perfect excuse for a sale, so I’m offering 20% off all of my ruffle scarves and scarflettes for the next two weeks!

So what if spring is supposedly approaching?  I wear my own pink and purple ruffle scarf most of the year (I do live in Scotland after all) and it’s always winter somewhere around the globe!

These ruffle scarves are 100% acrylic and come in a range of colours to match your style.  The layered yarn creates waves of textured ruffles and is slightly stretchy – not to mention soft and comfortable to wear.  In addition to full length scarves, I also have a number of shorter scarflettes which come with their own coordinating scarf pin.

All of my ruffle scarves have been automatically reduced by 20% until midnight on 28th of February (GMT), so there’s no need to worry about entering coupon codes – the hard work has already been done for you.

So if you’re looking for a special birthday present, getting ready for Christmas ridiculously early, or just want to treat yourself – head on over to my Etsy shop sale!

A Scarf for Every Budget

27 Jul

With this recession and all I’ve been thinking a lot about material costs lately and trying to keep mine as low as possible.   I’ve avoided more expensive and luxurious wools like malabrigo merino and instead headed for acrylics, polyester and wool/acrylic blends.  (I’d like to add that I also use these yarns because I think the end result looks fab and they seem to be popular!)

I also look out for good deals and cheaper places to source my yarns so that I can keep my prices at a reasonable level.  For example I’ve just managed to source my ribbon yarn for a cheaper price than before and as a result my Tango Ribbon Scarves are now more than 10% cheaper !

Although we’ve all been hit financially in some way or another, I’ve also realised that there must still be plenty of people out there who would happily pay a bit more for a good quality, luxuriously thick woollen scarf.  Afterall, a lot of hours goes into knitting a full length wool scarf so not only are you paying for the more expensive material, but for the labour as well.

Purple Malabrigo Merino Cable Scarf

My aim for this year and next is to focus on creating a wide range of good quality, hand knitted scarves made from a variety of materials in order to suit all budgets.  From the cheaper, fluffy polyester scarves right up to the more expensive malabrigo merino wool numbers, each scarf would be knitted with love. 

In recent times I’ve been hesitant to invest in the luxurious brands of wool for fear that the finished scarves will be deemed too expensive and sit unwanted in the back of my shop.  In the meantime I have been using a merino wool/acrylic blend which is 70% merino wool and 30% acrylic.

Red Merino/Acrylic Blend Ribbed Scarf

My question for you is this – how much would you be willing to spend on a scarf that was hand knitted with luxurious, top quality wool?  I’m just looking for ball park figures here , but would be so grateful if you would leave a comment below!
