‘Purple Shimmer’ scarf was hand painted individually on 100% natural Thai silk made from raw yarn, so it has a ‘slubby’ uneven weave, which is only evident on close inspection. The scarf is lightweight and smooth with a good length for folding and draping. It is ideal for wear over a coat but will look good with any outfit and will stay in place on clothes without slipping. The scarf was painted using the shibori technique of pole wrapping. Between each wrapping the dyes were steam set for intense colour saturation. The scarf is colourfast and can be washed safely in warm water by hand.
