Pure silk georgette wrap infused with pure merino wool. Modern contemporary unique and original design. Georgette is 8m/m, which means that it is heavy enough to have a nice drape to it.

:):):) This wrap has gone through two dye cycles, 4 weeks of saturating with natural plant materials to get the best possible patterns, and felting process. It has been a long and quite a transforming journey, for it started as a white piece of silk georgette, 2.3 meters long and 114 cm wide.

!!!! It was first hand dyed wonderful turquoise colour.
Then, various plants were wrapped in it and the scarf was folded and secured with clamps.
After 1 hour cooking in the natural dye bath it was left in a ziplock bag to cure for a month. When it finally got opened, it went through a cycle of fixing the colour and several ironing sessions.
Then, it was time to felt a few "rosettes" on the sides to give it weight and nice, natural drape.

When you wrap it around your shoulders, it will cover your whole back and in the front, it will fall down almost to the edge of your mini dress. It looks fabulous that way. Wear it over a black dress or over brown, beige or purple. I even wear mine with my jeans and it looks perfect. Very cool and contemporary.

It is now 114cm by 200 cm. That's 45 in x 79in. Unique, handmade with care and lots of love.

I left the edges raw, because it just looks much, much better this way and the raw edges really go with the character of this wrap.

Wonderful as an evening wear, on top of your little black dress, as a shawl to throw over your shoulders when you go out for those cool summer evenings.



It would be a wonderful present for your mom for Mother's Day.
