Hand-painted silk scarf. 14" x 72"
100% silk, 8mm Habotai Silk Scarf
Hand-painted by yours truly. This scarf took a long time to prepare and paint. On this one, I used the same wash- and light-fast dyes I use on my fiber and yarn in a bunch of different colors. But then a mishap happened when I was steam-setting the scarf--it somehow dropped into a vat with dye in it, so all the different colors became purple and blue. I loved the effect, however, it's more organic than I was intending, but it has beautiful shades of blue and purple.
Please be careful while washing (wash gently in lukewarm water with wool wash or gentle soap). Iron gently to dry and remove wrinkles.
I try to photograph colors as accurately as possible. Please keep in mind that color varies from monitor to monitor--what looks right on my screen may not be the same on yours!
