Inspired by the subtle markings and colours of certain snakes, this piece was woven in 100% fine, luxurious Chinese, silk. The black threads were commercially dyed but all the shades of brown were hand dyed by me with dye extracted from walnut hulls.
Once it was completed and removed from the loom I twisted the warp threads at either end to make tasselled fringes, then 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 tasselled fringe at either end. (28 x 177 plus 12 cms)
I would recommend gentle washing in tepid water when necessary, and pressing while still damp.
I was inspired to weave this scarf after seeing a TV programme which included close-up views of snakes and their markings.
