This peacock blue and bright pink pair of never worn, hand-woven Scottish wool scarves dates from the 1950s- 60s, and came to me still in their packaging. The world-traveling original owner purchased them on a mid-century trip to Fort William in Scotland. The West Highland Museum in Fort William is focused on the history of the Scottish Highlands and the Islands. Apparently, the town also used to feature a Scottish craft exhibition! These lovely, lightweight wool scarves are a narrow rectangle in shape, just long enough to tie comfortably around a small- to medium-sized neck (see photos), with short fringe at each end. The plain blue wool scarf is the same shade that is woven with the bright pink in the two-tone scarf. From farther way, the blue and pink colors blend together to look more like orchid or fuchsia. The soft wool is nearly sheer. The 2 scarves are each labeled as 100% lambswool. They are in excellent to mint, unworn condition.

Size: 42” long (including ½” of fringe at each end) and 8.5” wide
Label: Hand-Woven in the Scottish Highlands, 100% lambs’ wool
