Handwoven by fair trade artisans, this sheer silk organza scarf is accented by balls of cotton that are inserted into the fabric during the weaving process. The result is an ethereal silk scarf accented by soft cotton dots.
The fibers in cotton and silk take the dyes in a different manner. The silk reflects light as a soft glow, the cotton in a matte tone.
I dyed this silk scarf in a very concentrated bath of cochineal natural dye with a pinch of soda ash. The soda ask brings out the blues in the red color.
Very easy to care, can be machine washed on delicate cycle. Hang to dry, and iron if desired. This deep burgundy red is one of the 2017-18 fashion forecast colors.
Lightweight, travel friendly, the cotton dots add a touch of fun. The scarf can be tied in different ways to expand your wardrobe style. Tie both ends together to create an infinity scarf.
