A Labor of love.
When I find a cat that inspires me with their courage, beauty, or both... a CatScarf is not a long way off. Finding a design to balance a cat's coat and their personality is the key ingredient to each CatScarf design.
Getting the right fiber for the each scarf was the coziest elimination process I've ever been a part of. Sure, coming up with a design is always exciting, but finding the right fiber is where the fun is at. Not all fibers are right for all scarves. Our inaugural collection includes mink, merino wool, silk, and super-fine alpaca; all of which hail from different corners of the globe. No fiber is without its burden, but we strive to source as eco-friendly as can be.
The Knitting Process
After the fibers and design are locked in, and I have a cat's measurements, the knitting begins. Each scarf is knit by me, by hand. No shortcuts. Knitting a CatScarf takes anywhere from 3 - 6 hours, depending on the complexity of the design and the size of the cat.
Each CatScarf is blocked to purrfection, with all ends cleverly woven in.
When a CatScarf is done, we mail it out to you with personal love and attention. Each CatScarf is laid on top of a bed of wool roving, with a personalized tag and our logo stamped on the box.
P.S. A CatScarf makes for an amazing, thoughtful gift.
