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.
