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 a subtle mixture of a beautiful turquoise with soft accents of grey.
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.
***This is a straight scarf, but can be ordered as an infinity loop if preferred. I simply sew the ends together in a simple seam. If you would like the infinity version, just add a note upon purchase - or if you forget, just convo me immediately after purchase.
Make sure to browse through my shop to see other patterns, colours and silks. I offer other shibori dyed scarves as well as painted scarves in a variety of silks and colorways - you may find something that ‘speaks’ to you!
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.
SHIPPING NOTE: Scarves are posted in an envelope and ship inexpensively this way. This does not include tracking, but I have not had any problems so far. If you would prefer tracking, please convo me and we can work that out. The cost would be approximately $10 more.
Thanks for looking and enjoy!

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. However this does not include tracking. There is however, a shipping upgrade available if you prefer to pay for tracking. 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.
