[WEAR] SCARFSHOP // COLORBLOCKS & RANDOM DYE SCARF COLLECTIONS

Today SCARFSHOP is celebrating their 1 year anniversary! (Happy Anniversary SCARFSHOP!) I own eight scarves hand dyed by Martha W McQuade, the designer behind SCARFSHOP. I can attest to their quality and beauty and to the fact that one can never have too many SCARFSHOP scarves! In fact I think they are the best gift to give, I even bought one for Appah for last year.

I am thrilled about two new lines that SCARFSHOP is introducing today--COLORBLOCKS and RANDOM DYE. The COLORBLOCKS collection are silk/cotton scarves inspired by modernist color blocked paintings from the 50s and 60s. The watercolor effect is achieved by a special direct dye method. 

I am having a hard time picking a favorite but I think the white/grey is right up my alley.

For those of you who follow Martha's work you know she is often inspired by the texture and colors in her natural environment which is reflected in her work.

I love the size of the COLORBLOCKS scarves which allows it to be worn in so many different ways.

I also love the new RANDOM DYE collection. The RANDOM DYE scarves are made from the original airy cotton but each with a unique random dye pattern. Each pattern develops over several weeks as a result of dyeing solid scarves. 

Now I think the hardest part is choosing which scarves to buy for myself and for friends and family!

Lovely post, Sally! I recently got to know of Scarfshop (through one of your tweets) and am in love with the colour block range.

Could I ask what size(s) your eight scarves are? I can't seem to decide between the larger three!

Also, I thought you might find this video incredibly useful if you haven't already stumbled upon it ... 25 ways to wear a scarf:

SHER REEN // I think six of the eight scarves are the regular size and two are the skinny size. I'm petite and I find the regular size to be my favorite size. You will love them!! And thanks for the scarf video...can't wait to check it out!
