Scarf - Bunting

Product Description
Buntings, a worsted woollen fabric developed in the turn of the 17th century.  The fabric was heat treated to create a shiny appearance.  It was generally used for ribbon or flag making.  Worsted woollen fabrics originated in the town of Worstead, Norwich, England.  Long staple fibres were used to create worsted fabric.   Essentially the fibres are processed and combed to sit them parallel to one another.  This painstaking process ensures that each and every fibre runs in the same direction ie. The end that was on the sheep is at the bottom and the end that was cut is at the top! Any short fibres are removed.  Consequently, you are left with a lightweight course resilient breathable fabric ideal for suiting. Originally used in Naval ships, buntings are a string of flags.  The officer responsible for flag signalling was called a ‘Bunt’.
