Traditionally used by shepherds to wrap lambs, Shepherd plaid scarves originated in the hills of the Scottish Borders. Perfect for wrapping up against the cold, this large soft lambswool scarf has been redesigned with contemporary colours.
Based on glencheck and gunclub tweed patterns, we now have two warm and cosy Shepherd scarves available, perfect for bundling up in the coming winter months. Made of 100% Lambswool and measuring 200 x 53 cms plus fringe, they are incredibly versatile and can be worn as scarves, shawls and wraps.
Wyvis - Based on a glencheck tweed pattern, it has a soft stone and bracken background with pink and lime overchecks.
Merrick - Based on a gunclub tweed pattern it has a rich autumnal background colours, with oxide red and aqua overchecks.
