Dr Who Scarf combinations, in both wool & washable blends!

contributed by Shawn

This year is the 50th Anniversary (1963-2013) of the BBC's Dr Who television series. The demand for Dr. Who scarves is up and requests for knitting materials for these coveted scarves has been phenomenal in the past 6-8 months. We continue to order the colors for authentic replica knitting almost as fast as our suppliers can ship it! 

While customers continue to order the Brown Sheep Nature Spun yarns in sport and worsted weights for these scarves, some customers have been asking for machine washable alternatives. Because Plymouth Encore has such a good color range, we were able to find some close color matches for this scarf. A soft, easy care yarn, Encore will delight any Dr. Who fan. So if you are ready for a washable, wearable, wonderful Dr. Who scarf we’ve got you covered!
(Please note these colors are for the popular Season Twelve replica. See below for additional information and other television season alternatives.)

Great post! Even the Yarn Harlot flagged, though, making the whole scarf. There's a little necktie that would be doable!
