Stone washed silk de chine is my absolute favorite silk for wearable art. It is just luminous, lovely, and lightweight. This touchable silk is a large piece at 22 x 90 inches. The great thing about the large size of this item is the versatility. It can be wrapped for a great neck scarf, used as a wrap, left to hang long with an overcoat for a dash of fun, or wrapped for an incredible top. Did you know that silk is both cooling and warming? In the hot summer sun, silk protects you from the sun. In the winter months, silk traps air and keeps the chill away.

I use only the best french silk dye. This scarf has been steam set for at least 3 hours after painting. This creates a bond between the silk and the dye at a molecular level for incredible light and wash fastness. Additionally, there is no feel (or 'hand') of the dye on the silk. If you were to close your eyes and feel this scarf and a blank one of the same type and weight, you would not be able to tell which has an application of color. It was cured for 48 hours before rinsing in 4 water baths.

Each scarf is lovingly painted by hand by me in my home-based studio in Minnesota. The silk is prepared by pre-washing by hand and then stretched onto Artsy stretcher bars with silk suspension hooks (there are no marks and no marring of the silk this way). I enjoy watching the dye wick around the silk fibers. Even if I use this color mixture again, there will never be another scarf that looks like this. This is one-of-a-kind.

I prefer to ship via Priority USPS with an inner package to protect this precious beauty.
