You know what I just learned? In French, the word Foulard means “silk,” but if you divide the word by syllables, you get Fou (Crazy) and Lard (Fat) which is just endless fun, when you consider this is the name of the scarf that looks like a strip of raw Bacon, designed by Swiss artist Natali Luder. This awesome, 100% Silk Crepe De Chine scarf sells for 160 CHF (Swiss Francs) plus shipping (or about $180 Dollars), at This Link.
The weather is getting little bit balmy here in NYC (finally) to need a scarf or wrap these days, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be thinking ahead to the cold winter months and crochet yourself a Bacon Wrap to keep you warm and fashionable. Tips on how to make this item, along with all kinds of wild ideas on creating other fun stuff with just some yarn and a couple of crochet hooks can be found at Monster Crochet Blogspot.
It’s 27 degrees here in New York right now, and that’s really fucking cold! If there’s one thing you need to be wearing under your coat when you go outside, it’s a warm scarf! What great timing it is then that Etsy.com is offering for sale this very realistic looking, custom made, hand felted bacon scarf. According to the item description, “The loose red, pink, and white merino wool has been welt felted with warm, soapy water and agitated to hold its shape. Nothing is sewn, knitted, or crocheted. It measures between 6-8″ wide and 44-48″ long. This is an approximation since this scarf – much like real bacon – is not a true rectangular shape. It looks like a real slice of bacon, with the striations of fat and meat. It’s kind of gross and awesome at the same time.” I love it. Scarf sells for $120 each. What a bargain!
