OUT OF STOCK - Eri/Peace Silk Hand-woven Long Scarf - Natural with small woven design - 70 x 200cm OUT OF STOCK
A heavier-weight, draping and very soft 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, with a small very pleasant design woven into it, like little squares of twill.
This silk will be suitable for many silk painting and dyeing techniques, along with eco-printing, but is probably too thick for 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 70 x 200cm
