New for Fall! This open check weave silk scarf was dyed with Saxon Blue indigo and pomegranate natural dyes. The mix creates a jewel tone teal blue color.

After dyeing the shawl was neutralized in a vinegar bath and washed three times. The vinegar strengthens the silk fibers and restores the sheen. The wrap is easy care, can be hand or machine washed on delicate cycle. Colorfast. Hang to dry, and iron if desired.
