Scarf Gorilla’s Fur L
100% Socially Made in Amsterdam
Soft Merino Wool hand knitted
Watch out for our Gorilla 😉
This fearless, strong grey-melange knit reminded us of the African herbivorous’ fur. The gorilla is the largest living primate, watches over the African forests and is, besides our source of inspiration, also a great creature to observe. Its boldness and wise but bossy attitude reflects in this delicate but strong knit.
The L sized scarfs are 35cm x 180cm. There is a S size available in the web shop as well, for those who need a little less warmth.
For this collection, we present hand-knitted textiles with a subtle structure and delicately picked finishing. The rich feeling of the soft merino wool asks to be touched, held and worn. The new collection shows a testament of clean and indulging design and reflects an excellent understanding of the craft behind knitting.
The textiles, unlike other collections of the brand, have an uninterrupted even texture and color. Except for one contrasting line (‘Lijn’ in Dutch) that highlights merely a shimmer of the underlying texture of the cloth. The serene atmosphere that surrounds the collection, easily compliments many wardrobes and might accompany you with a wholehearted feeling of warmth in the winter.
- Additional information
The Winter in Holland ‘warm knits’ collection includes soft, but above all, warm merino scarfs. Both menswear and womenswear. Winter in Holland intents to produce with high quality materials and with the best knowledge of fibers and production processes. This results in a product which you will be able to use for a long time. The merino scarfs are knitted in Amsterdam by our crafts ladies under our social label ‘Socially Made in Amsterdam’.
The makers of our textiles, come from cultures where education for women still is uncommon. Ever since they moved to The Netherlands years ago, they are unable to participate on the job market. They are bound to home instead. Winter in Holland helps these women become independent and gives them a career within the field of textiles. The women receive education to become professional knitters, will earn money for their work and will gain help to set up their own business. All products made by these craftswomen, are marked by the label: Socially Made in Amsterdam.
A characteristic of pure wool is that it is easy to care for. It is a self-cleaning product. “The core of the wool fiber consists of two types of cells that absorb different quantities of moisture. As a result, one type swells more than the other and they move in constant friction. This gives the wool fiber a mechanical self-cleaning effect.” Concluding this: wool products do not need frequent cleaning and rather need ventilation in humid weather conditions.
Wool, if treated kindly, will maintain its beauty and softness for its long life.
In order to keep the wool happy:
1. Minimal washing would be great.
2. If washing is necessary, spot washing or a cold hand wash will give the best results.
3. Do not put me in the dryer. Dry me on a flat surface.
4. Do not iron me, the woven pattern will not appreciate that.
5. Love me & hug me. I will certainly do the same for you.
