Hand Dyed Indigo Shibori Silk Wool Wrap

This 50% silk 50% merino wool wrap will keep you warm on a chilly evening. Woven by fair trade artisans, I dyed the fabric with a mix of Logwood natural dye and soda ash.  The wrap was clamped with metal objects and dipped indigo to create the patterns.

This hand dyed silk wool scarf was made by first dyeing the fabric with a mixture of logwood and cochineal plant dyes.  I folded the fabric accordion style and clamped the center area with metal square objects.  The metal acts as a resist to the dye, creating patterns.  The method is called “Itajime.”  The scarf was dipped in the indigo vat twice, creating the lavender squares in the  center.

I washed the wrap three times and ironed it.  It is very soft and can be worn as a wrap or scarf.

Care: Wash it in a gentle cycle or hand wash in cool water.  Hang to dry.  If you want to iron it for a smoother look, use a silk setting.
