A spring moss green color on this silk scarf with cotton balls was created with osage and indigo natural dyes. The Cotton balls are woven into the fabric. The scarf was dyed first with Osage, and then over dyed with indigo. It is the color of early spring.
This sheer scarf was woven from fine silk organza on a hand loom by a fair trade weaver near the east coast of India. Balls of cotton are woven into the fine silk organza warp and weft. 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.
After dyeing 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.
Lightweight, travel friendly, the cotton dots add a touch of fun.
