Indie Scoop
MG_7724.jpgWe are loving Spratter’s & Jayne’s new scarf styles for fall (as well as their classic favorites). They are so chic, comfortable and versatile - throw them on with a long sleeve tee and jeans for weekend days or wear them with a dressy coat when heading out to a more formal affair. This season’s styles are also made by a women’s co-op of crocheters outside of Lima and Peru, where the line’s signature ultra-soft Merino/Highland Wool is produced. Creator Rachel Warner travels to Peru every year to ensure a fair work environment and promote green production.

The line is available at specialty stores including Henri Bendel and Opening Ceremony, as well as on their Etsy site.ssjoyhunmp.png
