Our limited edition, diamond twill Dacre collection of scarves and wraps are woven with ultra-fine Merino and are entirely New Zealand grown and crafted.
The Merino yarn was grown on one farm near Middlemarch, spun into yarn in Milton and hand woven by Rod McLean in Oamaru, all rural Otago communities historically involved in wool production since the 1800's.
The chocolate brown, taupe, silver and white yarns used are all naturally coloured, just as they came off the sheep, while metal free eco-dyes are used on any yarn that has been dyed.
The traditional herringbone pattern of this scarf represents strength and unity, and references the heritage and values of McLean & Co and our passion for preserving traditional textile skills using the finest New Zealand yarn.
These scarves are made to be worn. They will hold their shape and any creases will disappear as they are worn. You may notice slight irregularities in colour and texture - a feature inherent in hand crafted textiles, and one that sets the hand woven apart.
Wrap yourself in luxurious New Zealand quality, very limited edition with only a small number of scarves and wraps left in this collection.
