This scarf is hand dyed by me, using a shibori technique which involves immersing the scarf in different dye baths and re-tying in between. This is one of my signature colourways. The scarf is first direct dyed in a rainbow of colours including lemon, cherry, and lavender, then overdyed in brilliant blue. The result is an opal like surface, or the colours you see in oil on water - colourful, yet subtle.
At 14 x 72" it is long and wide enough to wear as a scarf or wrap around the shoulders. This 100% silk habotai scarf has a beautifully soft drape, partly due to the multiply dye baths and is a pure pleasure to wear! The colours glow and shimmer! The scarf has been heat set, washed and ironed, ready for easy care by you.
Please note that the scarf pictured is an example of the above mixture of colours. No two scarves will be exactly the same even when they have been in the same dye bath, so the scarf you receive will have the same colour mixtures in it but may not be the exact scarf in the picture.

Care for your scarf:
Your scarf is totally washable. Just gently hand wash in warm water with a tiny bit of liquid soap. Rinse, and roll in a towel for a few minutes, then iron while damp on a steam setting for a silky smooth result. The colours are set but during the wash you may see a bit of pale colour in the water -don't panic - this won't dye anything at this stage, just rinse as above.

I ship by Canada Post expedited. This will go by air internationally and in Canada. Most scarves can ship in a padded envelope and so are not expensive to ship by letter air mail.

When you checkout, there should be a down arrow by the 'standard shipping' box - click and you will see an amount for shipping with tracking.
Most of my scarves are already made, so I can ship out within 1-2 business days. However, a few styles are pictures of previously sold scarves whose colours and styles can be more or less repeated. (This is mentioned in the listing.) These can take up to 7 days to post.
Once I have posted an item, shipping times vary - anywhere on the east coast of Canada and the U.S. should take up to a week. Further west may take a week to 10 business days. Internationally can take up to two weeks or more.
