Sophie Digard is a French knitwear designer who creates unique wearable works of art including her range of scarves. The hand crocheted Sophie Digard scarves are made from finely spun merino wool, coloured with natural vegetable dyes to create special colour palettes for each scarf. The fibres are spun and dyed in France and shipped to her workshop in Madagascar where they are hand crocheted, knitted and embroidered by local crafts people into unique works of art. The more elaborate designs can take up to three months to complete. Her limited output means they are difficult to get hold of!
