Hand-Dyed Indigo Infinity Scarf
The process of hand-dying is an artfully crafted skill, making each piece uniquely beautiful. This one-of-a-kind infinity scarf was hand-dyed using an ancient Japanese shibori technique where the scarf was dipped in an indigo bath. The indigo dye creates gorgeous color variations and patterns. The scarf material is raw silk and the edges are left raw for the perfect drape.
Raw silk is silk that has not been stripped of sericin. Silk emitted by a silkworm consists mainly of two proteins — sericin and fibroin. Fibroin is the structural center of the silk (aka fine silk) and sericin is the gum coating the fibers that allows them to stick to each other. As a result of maintaining its sericin, raw silk is somewhat heavier in texture and not as lustrous as fine silk.
Dimensions: 22 inches x 34 inches (you can drape it around your neck twice).
Care: Hand wash in COLD water, any non-bleach detergent will do. Hang dry and press on a low heat setting.
