  • Handmade
  • Materials: silk scarf, cochineal dye, alum, fabric paint

  • Length: 59.5 inches
  • Width: 11.7 inches

First off, the scarf was hand dyed with Cochineal. The dye has a long history as a color has enticed so many. Depending on the mordants used the color can be altered making it intriguing and challenging to dye with. Throughout time it has been highly sought after for what it is, a beautiful red.

On this scarf, it has manifested as a fuchsia or purplish-red. As shibori was the means of creating pattern, it helped to bring out the variations in the color value as well.

Like so many of the pieces I produce, this was an experiment just to see how the dye worked, what it looked like on silk and simply to give me some exposure to its workings. Needless to say, I love the results.

The scarf is 11.7 x 59.5 inches long, is Habotai or China silk and is smooth and feather light.

If it were to get soiled I would rinse it in cold water, using a non-bleach detergent (something used for delicates) – only a drop or two – washing by hand. Line dry out of direct sunlight, press on a low or silk setting.

This is amazing! The rabbits are well defined in a watercolor way. The colors are just beautiful! I was going to wear it but, it needs to be hung and displayed with my collection of rabbit art.
