DIY Pendleton Scarf

As featured on blog: All Things New. I thought I'd share my first DIY with my own readers!! Enjoy!

 Supplies:  Scrap Pendleton wool- I got a 12 pound bag of Pendleton wool blanket scraps for $25.00 at the factory in Pendleton, Oregon. Best craft purchase ever!

Step 1: Lay the wool flat and cut to your desired length. (I just wrapped the wool scrap around my neck twice to get the length I wanted).

Step 2: Trim the edges of the Pendleton wool, removing fringe and other colors of wool that were attached at one point.

Step 3: Make sure you've cut off all colors and pieces of the scarf that do not belong (evenly I might add) and prepare the edges for finishing.

Step 4: Your finished edge should look similar to this, you have several options for finishing the hem of a wool scarf. You can pink the edges, hand stitch around the hem, or leave it raw as I did. (which is the easy way out ;)

And Voila!

  1. Super cute! I just love living so close to the Pendleton outlet store! I got enough wool to make a coat this fall for 15 dollars. Totally am going to use this to save this Pendleton skirt that has a few moth holes but would totally have enough ok bits for this!!!

  2. I honestly don't know how I went this long without knowing about Pendleton fabrics! I bought a Pendleton coat recently and can't wait to invest in more fabric.
