Soft Silk and Cotton Scarves

Fair Trade handwoven scarvesA very light and supple weave that’s perfect for artful draping.  This scarf is 90% silk and 10% cotton woven in a check pattern where the cotton forms the checks and the silk is the background.  It takes dyes beautifully.  If you are using Aquarelle liquid indigo/Saxon Blue, the silk will dye a medium aqua and the cotton will be very light so you really see the checked weave structure.  With other dyes, the color will be homogeneous.

The scarf measures 79×20 inches (200×50 cm).
