Eri or Peace Silk
Eri or Peace Silks Fibres and Fabrics - Eri/Peace Silk Hand-woven Long Scarf - Medium-weight Natural - 80 x 190cm NEW (6 in stock)
A medium-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 natural creamy tone. This silk will be suitable for many silk painting and dyeing techniques, along with eco-printing, but bear in mind that there will be slight variations in the threads as it is hand-made so may not be suitable for more intricate gutta work. I advise washing in Synthrapol or a gentle hand-wash before colouring, to make sure the natural sericin has been removed.
The ends of the scarves have been twisted into a fringe by hand, and the edges are the selvedge of the fabric. Sizes are approximate as these are all hand-woven.
Approx 80 x 190cm
