Eri or Peace Silk

Eri or Peace Silks Fibres and Fabrics - Indian Cream Eri/Peace Silk Hand-Loomed Long Scarf - 15 momme/77gsm - 68 x 190cm ERI

Indian Cream Eri/Peace Silk Hand-Loomed Long Scarf - 15 momme/77gsm - 68 x 190cm ERI A beautiful new substantial-weight silk scarf hand-woven in India from Eri silk, where the silkworm is allowed to emerge naturally from the cocoon.

The colour is a glistening creamy shade and the silk is SO soft! The ends of the scarves have been twisted into a fringe by hand, and the edges are the selvedge of the fabric.

This silk will be suitable for many silk painting and dyeing techniques, along with eco-printing. Please wash first in Synthrapol or a gentle hand-wash before colouring especially when silk painting. I did not find this necessary when trialing the silk by dip-dyeing.

The scarves dye beautifully with Acid dyes as shown in the photo, Quick Color microwave dyes, silk paints and dyes, and natural dyes. Suitable for shibori, block printing and more.

Sizes are approximate as these are hand-made to order for us. There may be natural slubs and variations in the fabric, which is part of it's inherent charm.

Approx 68 x 190cm
