Full Moon Shibori - Botanical Dyed Silk Scarf
This large silk scarf has been dyed with indigo, logwood and chestnut, and features a hand stitched resist of a round woodgrain patterned moon at each end. One of the little surprises that I love about this scarf is the warm little halo of gold which appeared at the edges of the binding I used to resist the dark from the light. It comes from the chestnut making itself known between the dark purple black and the indigo blue. I also used a stitched resist line along the edges of the dark to resist the original logwood purple before adding the chestnut.
This is a large but very lightweight silk scarf with a medium but soft drape. It can be worn looped, knotted, draped, hooded or as a light shawl. This particular scarf is beautiful worn wide around the waist with a skirt or pants and will transform the simplest of outfits into something stunningly unique.
