This classic denim blue is color of jeans after you have worn them for a while. I dyed this silk linen scarf in an indigo bath after folding and wrapping the fabric with string to create subtle patterns. The string acts as a resist to the dye, so you get a lighter blue where the string was tied to the fabric.
When the scarf is washed or dyed, it becomes crinkled. You can also iron it to be flat and wider for a shawl. It is long enough to create a cowl. Just tie both ends together and wrap it around your neck twice.
This silk and linen fibers take dye in a different manner. The silk reflects light as a soft glow, then linen creates as matte tone. The scarf is long and wide enough to be a shawl. It was woven in a fair trade village near the east coast of India.
After the dye process, the shawl was neutralized in a vinegar bath and washed three times. Very easy to care, can be machine washed on delicate cycle. Hang to dry, and iron if desired. It will crinkle more if you leave it un-ironed.
Lightweight, travel friendly, it can go from season to season.
