Silk Scarf in Stone Terraced Cottages design
Love this


The design of this scarf was inspired by a row of terraced cottages built of natural stone. Each cottage has a little chimney in the same colour as its walls. I dyed the silk in the various stone colours using natural dyes such as tree fungus, heather and sedge grass. The sky, the grass and the doors and windows colours I dyed with synthetic dyes. The weave technique here is called Beiderwand, a German word meaning double faced; the back shows the colours in reverse position. The finished scarf is 10" wide by 67" long, plus 5" tasselled fringes at each end. (25 x 169 plus 12 cms) After completion I washed the piece thoroughly to enhance the softness and drape qualities and pressed it while it was still damp to bring out the sheen of the silk fibre. I recommend hand washing in tepid water when necessary, followed by pressing while still damp.


After being inspired by the painted terraced cottages I'd seen in Wales, I started to notice terraced houses in general and was taken by the subtlety of the natural shades in stone terraced cottages.
