Availability: In stock

£126.00

An eye-catching Thailand-Laos style scarf beauty benefitting from a more casual and relaxed scarf design. Made from 100% wildly-harvested hand-spun cotton through and through, this cuddly, more summery stunner attracts attention in any of the five predominantly indigo-hued colour combinations -- here featured in brown-eggshell. Optimised with corresponding mantra and crystal it marries the word 'Anima' with 10 mm Tawny Agate near-hidden in the twisted tassels at both ends.

Feeling (attracted to the colour) brown?


It eagerly says reliability, stability & approachability. It is the colour of our earth and the DIRE WOLF species & is therefore associated with all things natural or organic. Without being boring, it provides a sense of wholesomeness & order.


God had a brown voice,
as soft & full as beer.
~Anne Sexton
(poet & Pulitzer Prize winner,
1928-1974)

Long ago worn by worriers for victory in battle, Tawny Agate today is still considered a wealth & success talisman of note said to protect against the evil eye. A soothing & calming stone, Agate works slowly but brings great strength.


— I am rock solid 

Anima of Dire Wolf


The properties of Anima, the life force that harnesses the energy of both sun & moon, amalgamate with Tawny Agate. As it protects, grounds & balances, let the dark brown hues of Dire Wolf cover you in times of welcome solace & inspiration.


Vitality
shows in not only the ability to persist
but the ability to start over.
~F. Scott Fitzgerald
(author of novels & short stories,
1896-1940)

Laos and Thailand amicably fight over who invented the basics of this scarf design first.  Pure cotton, especially when hand-spun, is a fibre that only achieves cuddly softness as a neckwarmer when it is woven in a way that is not too loose and not too tight.  Adding an experienced master weaver's TLC to every individual piece ensures a VIP finish for optimal quality & softness.    

—      The eye-catching nuances of its hues varying from one end of the scarf to the other leave no less admiration for its cuddliness or hand-spun cotton nature …
