This is a one-off original scarf of 100% fine, luxurious silk. It has the lovely drape and softness you expect of silk.
The warp is hand dyed in a range of blues, pale at one side and graduating across the width to dark with a touch of purple, in the way a sunset sky often graduates from dark at the horizon to pale overhead.
The weft threads were hand dyed in colours that were in the sunset which inspired the piece.
I chose the scallop pattern, which progresses diagonally through the scarf, because it suggested the way the colours in a sunset sky are caught in bands of cloud that traverse the colour changes.
Once it was completed I washed the scarf thoroughly to enhance the softness and drape qualities and pressed it while it was still damp, to bring out the full sheen of the silk.
The scarf is 11” wide by 72” long, plus 5” of tasseled fringe at either end.
I would recommend gentle washing in tepid water when necessary, and pressing while still damp.
This is one of a series of 4 scarves whose various colours and designs were inspired by sunset skies like the one in the picture above.
