Process: These scarves have been dyed using a organic botanical printing method, ie. placement of various flowers and leaves and trees from the garden onto 100% silk fabric, using vinegar or alum as a mordant rolled up and steamed or boiled to produce a result.
These scarves are created with love and a sense of wonder as each one is a unique work of art and until it is unwrapped after steaming I never know how they will turn out.
How to Care for your Scarf:
The scarves should be colour fast and able to be washed easily. I recommend hand wash only using a suitable wool wash mix. Dry on line and steam (not dry) iron to remove wrinkles.
I hope you will get as much pleasure out of wearing one, using it as a silk hanging or as a table cover, as I have in the making of them.
