Hand dyed and painted 100% silk chiffon scarf / wrap, dyed in a rich turquoise with wavy lines and dots in purple, blue and plum.
Chiffon is the the most feminine of silks, light, airy and soft, with layers of colour and pattern showing through the translucent layers. This is a square scarf, 36 x 36 inches. I first dyed this scarf in a German silk dye, then painted the abstract pattern with silk paints.
Each scarf is my unique expression and totally one of a kind. I have been designing with colour and pattern for over 20 years on both paper and fabric. Now I am truly enjoying applying these skills to something beautiful and wearable that may bring a little joy and pleasure into our daily experience.
I work very freely, so one scarf can be very different from another. Some are boldly patterned while others have a softer, watercolour effect. So make sure to browse through them all - you may find something that ‘speaks’ to you!
Care for your scarf:
I use specially formulated silk painting dyes which are heat fixed, so the scarf is totally washable. Just gently hand wash in warm water with a tiny bit of liquid soap. Rinse, and roll in a towel until you are ready to iron ( 10 minutes or 24 hours, it doesn't matter) Iron while damp on a steam setting for the best results.
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.
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 days. Internationally can take up to two weeks.
Refunds will be taken if I am notified within 7 days of your recieval of the item. The refund will be given once the item is returned and will be minus shipping costs.
