This top is made from a fine woven light grey scarf with added crocheted details at the neckline and upper torso. The crochet creates a second dimension of the garment while also working as a practical way to finish hems and extend pattern when the fabric just isn’t enough. Whilst making up-cycled garments is very exciting it also means that we are limited in terms of fabric quantity which is why we sometimes have to get creative with materials such as yarn.
For longest possible use of the garment, it should be washed by hand in cold water. Don’t worry, it is actually not more work than washing in the machine. If you would still like to machine wash it, that’s ok too. Totally up to you. Just make sure you’re using a wool or delicates cycle in cold water or max 30 degrees and on a low spin. For best keep of the garment put it in a mesh washing bag (if you have one, obviously the garment will be just fine without it too). Don’t put your garments in the dryer, it makes them lose colour and fit. Let them air dry instead. And most importantly, to prolong the life of the garment, as well as our planet, only wash when necessary.
