This is a stunning vintage 80s large Liberty of London varuna wool wrap, shawl, scarf in rich colours of mulberry, green, rust and blue in a rare stylised floral design, with a border and the Liberty name woven into the fabric. It's fabulous and in excellent almost pristine condition. For those unfamiliar with varuna wool it is a very soft, finely woven 100% wool fabric which is lightweight and warm but doesn't crush easily, so perfect for travelling. It is no longer used, so these vintage Liberty wraps are becoming increasingly rare to find. Unfortunately, varuna wool proves delicious to moths and most examples nowadays are vintage and therefore if badly stored, have more holes than a Swiss cheese. This example has two tiny holes (see photos) unnoticabe except on close inspection and certainly not noticeable when worn.
This is a rare example in this colourway and in an ususual colour combination. Liberty varuna wool items from the era are very sought after and collectable and at BSV we love them and try to find the best examples we can. This is in excellent condition, the wool is still crisp and vibrant with a perfect fringe and no snags at all. It's in a particularly attractive and eye catching design, doubly desirable because it's Liberty. It is in the most sought after large size and quite stunning. This would be a very stylish wrap to wear or use as a throw and, properly looked after, will last another 30+ years of glamorous wear.
Perfect gift for her.
It is 52" x 52"
