Bury-your-face-in-it cozy, our classic Seafaring Scarf is just the right vehicle for our gorgeous Big Good Wool. One hundred percent Andean highland wool in the colors of the sheep themselves, our chunky weight Big Good Wool is always dynamic and beautiful!

The Seafaring Scarf is knit up in fisherman’s rib, a wonderfully textural stitch that manages to be both traditional and perfectly modern. Fisherman’s rib gets its depth and squishiness from “knitting into the stitch below”… super simple and all illuminated in our video tutorial on the subject!

What makes the texture even more special is the yarn. At three and a half stitches to the inch, Big Good Wool magnifies all the beauty of the stitch pattern and of the wool itself.

Choose from five natural, undyed colors, in a range from this soft and subtle Winter Grass to rustic Hickory Nut. Can it get any better? Actually, it can! Of course, Big Good Wool comes in big skeins, so you’ll need just two for your own Seafaring Scarf!
