A lovely understated and elegant scarf.
Dyed with sprinkles of walnut and madder roots.
I collect the walnut every autumn up in the Sierra Nevada, the mountains near Granada.
The madder we grow. It takes about 3 years before we harvest the roots and we’re almost self sufficient in it, hopefully by next year.
Like all of my scarves this has been slowly dyed up on my roof using only the sun as a heat source, slowly and patiently letting nature do its work.
Obviously the scarf is unique.
It measures 45cm x 176cm (18” x 69”).
Pure silk with hand rolled edges.
The scarf can be washed in cool water and ironed. I usually iron on medium heat while the silk is still a little damp.
