11.11 is an exceptional label, with an ethos that strongly aligns with the S&S call to own fewer, better things — producing slow-fashion garments deliberately and sustainably across a network of local artisans and craftspeople throughout India. Everything they make is truly unique, with an undeniably natural and "human" element, from their patchwork and kantha embroidery, to the irregular nature of their low-tension handwoven textiles, to the tie-dye and natural indigo finishes, all of which will patina beautifully over time.
The wool shawl is made from a soft and lightweight 100% merino wool, then finished with an indigo clamp-dyed pattern & embroidered cotton trims. The indigo dye is completely natural, using plant indigo and fructose-based fermentation to achieve the desired color (alongside clamping the item in specific areas to avoid dye, creating the pattern).
It's big, measuring about 40" across and a whopping 84" long, making this a very versatile scarf or shawl when temperatures drop. The lightweight merino is soft and comfortable out the gate, and does a great job insulating when wrapped properly around your neck or shoulders, but breathes easily as well when things aren't so cold.
One size. Due to the hand-dyed nature of this item, no two will be exactly alike, and your shawl may not look like what we have photographed (though it will be quite similar). Wash cold and hang dry.
