The Opera Scarf
Each Opera Scarf is a one-of-a-kind creation that weaves together simplicity and elegance, designed to showcase the art of the unique, hand-dyed yarn itself.
On the Missouri farm where Velma was raised, her father spins beautiful, multi-colored yarns -- each skein a work of art. The raw fleece is washed, dyed and spun by hand to minimize the processing, and retain the innate warmth, texture and character of the natural wool.
For the artist, it is a labor of love to select the materials that complement “dad’s yarns” -- while adding a sparkle that is all her own. The final product blends the comfortable warmth of the artist’s Missouri roots with the whimsical color and sophisticated style of her adopted home in San Francisco.
