The process to create an Amy Leiner infinity scarf starts at Amy's Lavendula Farm in the Connecticut countryside with her beloved sheep and llama. She has four sheep; Kazoo, Violet, Vanilla, and Amy Bianca, and two Llama; Mrs. Gingah and Mateo. Many of these animals Amy rescued and brought to her farm.
After the sheep are sheared, the fleece is washed and oftentimes dyed, into a myriad of luscious colors. The dyed fleece is then carded (combed) and spun with a touch of sparkle using vintage threads and other unique trims. Silk chiffon ribbon or recycled sari silk is added, which may be custom color-matched and hand dyed.
A luxurious blend of specialty yarns and silk chiffon lengths are color coordinated and crocheted into this symphony of color and texture.
And if that wasn't enough of a visual feast, plush, natural feathers are triple layered and sometimes hand dyed to compliment the natural fiber, adding movement and dimension, continuing the color story. The finishing touched are one of a kind embellishments crafted of leather, gemstones, vintage findings, and the like, to bring to you the finest, organic masterpieces of wearable art.
