This tussah silk shawl is woven with the warp spaced on the loom to create the open check design. I first dyed this shawl with osage — a yellow dye from a local Pennsylvania tree. The second dye was a dip in the indigo vat, resulting in a rich emerald green hue.
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, and great for the autumn, winter and holidays.

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.

Super soft, warm, and with a great drape, this hand woven silk wool scarf is dyed with cochineal and little soda ash to raise the pH of the dye bath. The weaver from a fair trade village in India warped the loom with high twist silk and used very fine soft merino wool in the weft. When washed, the high twist silk gives the crinkled texture.
