I've been waiting for these beauties for a while now...and felt like a kid at Christmas when they turned up on Mr Sparrow's doorstep yesterday! They are deliciously soft, warm, delicate fishtail scarves and driving gloves from Adventures of Jessica Rose. These are undoubtedly the Cristal of the scarf and glove world. Each piece is hand-crocheted from the finest pure Mongolian cashmere, or in the case of the scarves, a 55% pure silk/ 45% pure Mongolian cashmere blend. The yarn is hand-dyed to achieve beautiful hues and saturation values, and each piece is just beautifully made. Aren't the colours so beautiful together, too? It almost seems a shame to break them up!
