Upcycled Necktie Scarf – Sears Acetate Yo-Yos

A scarf made with vintage neckties: acetate. Wearable art.

Original price was: $45.00.Current price is: $22.50.


This scarf was made by sewing two vintage neckties together, creating an artsy scarf. Both are labeled imported acetate. The blue one says “imported from France”. The brown one has a Sears label from The Men’s Store. I am guessing that they are from the late 60’s, on the skinny side, not flaring as later years.

I added a red medallion, also made of neck tie fabric, attached by embroidering.  The center is a yo-yo, as is the one on the skinny side.


A friend of mine was moving and called all of us fiber artists over to snap up her stash of supplies. She had a barrel full of neckties and told us that whatever was left was going into the dumpster, so I grabbed a bunch.  Couldn’t have that happen!

I had a lot of fun making these bold accessories (I made several). I think of this as something similar you would see in some countries, where a textile is draped for effect, more than for function.
