Knitted from acrylic or wool yarn (it's your choice), and finished with tassels, these tree scarves will make for an out and proud decoration this Christmas.
These scarves are all approximately 30ft long and wrap around your Christmas tree like looooooong woolly tinsel. They would also be equally effective as bunting or a garland for any gathering or celebration.
The scarves pictured in this listing are displayed on a 6ft artificial Christmas tree. They would look just as much at home on any Christmas tree measuring 5-7ft tall.
Because a tree scarf takes me two weeks to knit (usually while I’m watching TV in the evenings), I make them to order. This means there’s a very limited number I can offer each year. Opening up this pre-order means I'll have more time to knit more tree scarves for more people!
Tree scarves can be wound up into a cake shape for storage and shipping.
How will the Pre-order work?
The pre-order opens on28th May at 9 am BST(UK time) and will stay open throughout June, or until I have filled all my knitting slots, whichever happens sooner.
I’d recommend signing up for mynewsletterif you want a reminder on the day and a cheeky discount code.
Your orders will be shipped as soon as they are ready and in the order I received them.
All orders will ship on or before 1st November 2021. Once you have ordered I will give you a clearer estimated dispatch date for your tree scarf.
What if I want a tree scarf based on a pride flag not listed here?
No problem. I want to knit it for you. I’ve only listed the tree scarves I have pictures of here, so that customers can see what they are getting, but I want to offer ALL. THE. SCARVES.
This year I’m offering Christmas tree scarves inacrylicorwool.
Acrylicis the cheaper option. It does mean putting more plastic out into the world, but it also means it’s vegan. Acrylic is available in a staggering variety of vibrant colours, and it will pretty much last forever. You could probably chuck it in the washing machine too - if something strange happens to your Christmas tree and your scarf needed a wash.
Woolis a bit more expensive and it can be trickier to find it in the exact colours we want. The wool I'll be using comes from sheep, so it’s not vegan. It is a natural fibre so it will biodegrade if you decide you’re done with your decoration and throw it away. It will also be recyclable if you wanted to take it apart and spin/knit it into something new.
It’s up to you which fibre to choose. The tree scarves in the pictures here are all knitted in acrylic yarn.
How does this support the LGBT+ Community?
I want my tree scarves to advance the cause of Pride too. With that in mind, I’ll be donating 100% of profits from this pre-order toSwitchboard LGBT+, the helpline based in London.
