    Scarf #48 - Felted Merino Light Green | Phillipa Gee

    Phillipa started machine knitting about 3 years ago as a hobby, something different from her jewellery line. Phillipa quickly got a little obsessed with it! And found it so much fun to see a garment take shape, and was able to use her love of yarn and colour in the design and construction.

    These scarves and wraps are knitted on her 1970's Brother 830 which has a ribber; this is a completely manual machine. Initially the yarn she used came from wherever she could find it, as she needed it to be on a cone, soft, a nice colour, and plenty of it. She now have a couple of sources of yarns that use Merino, Mohair, Cashmere, Silk and Angora that she uses.             

    Her priority is softness.

    The first colour on the label is the base colour, and this is used throughout the whole scarf/wrap. Then the other colours are changed at regular intervals to create the horizontal check effect. The vertical strips will always be the base yarn, and it is also predominant on the back. the scarves and wraps are reversible and can be worn with either side facing out. On the label she has only written the main percentage of that fibre. The rest of the yarn will be Merino or a man made fibre to give it strength. 

    If a Poi Room customer requests certain colours to match an outfit Phillipa aims to be able to accomodate. She can also change the yarns if they have a specific liking for a type of fibre, and make different sizes. There is a code on the back of the yarn samples on the label for identification, so she can reproduce that scarf if required. Phillipa is currently just making scarves and wraps although she may move onto other garments in the future. 

    Note: Spot cleaning is preferred, the scarves and wraps can be carefully hand washed, recommended detergents are Softly Delicates, and Kindess for woolens delicates.

    Caring for your artwork

    HANGING YOUR ART - Where possible, hang your artwork with two wall mounted hangers fixed to wall studs or wall anchors when necessary. Do not hang your artwork in direct sunlight or in a room with large temperature variations.

    CLEANING -  Clean glass with a non-ammonia based glass cleaner with a microfiber cloth. Avoid spraying cleaner directly on the artwork. Dust your paintings & frames with a clean, soft rag occasionally to prevent dust build-up. Do not use cleaning products or water.

    LOCATION - Hang your artworks away from very busy & possibly messy areas. Over time, artworks can accumulate a thin layer of dust, pollutants & airborne grime. Display your artworks in a less exposed area affected by these.

    STORAGE - Prevent accidents & store your artworks away from anything that may press against the surface. Do not cover artworks with plastic for long periods of time. If there is humidity in the air, they may start to grow mold. Cotton sheets are best for keeping dust away.

    PREVENTION - Try avoid subjecting your artworks to extreme changes in atmosphere. Avoid excessive dryness, humidity, heat or cold. Check the condition of your artworks periodically. Once hung up there is a tendency to forget about it until noticeable damage has occurred. If you notice the artwork is fading or cracking, move it to a better place & avoid further damage.

    WE CAN HELP - If your artwork does get damaged, return the piece back to The Poi Room and we can advise the best course of action for you.
