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.
Lavender blue patterns define this 50% silk 50% merino wool wrap. Woven by fair trade artisans near the east coast of India, I have been working with them for a year. I design the fabric and they weave it with un-dyed natural fibers for me. It is like a blank canvas when it arrives, yet it carries the personality of each weaver. That is what I love about hand woven fabrics–you feel the connection with the person who made it.
I dyed the fabric with a mix of Logwood natural dye and soda ash to lay down the lavender color. The soda ash shifts to pH of the bath to alkaline and brings out a blue undertone. After washing, I folded and clamped the wrap with metal objects before it entered the indigo pot. The metal acts as a resist to the dye, creating patterns. The method is called “Itajime.”
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.
