This hand dyed hand woven silk scarf is inspired by fresh summer colours in a fine silk yarn at 60 threads per inch.


Made with the finest quality silk yarns, the warp has been hand dyed in shades of lime and turqouise then woven with a hand dyed weft of turquoise bringing an irridescence, richness and depth to the scarf.

Each piece is individually designed and has been carefully woven on a traditional 8 shaft floor loom, creating an individual and luxurious silk textile with a focus on colour and quality. This one-off artisan textile is finished with hand hemstitching and a Skye Silks label.


Skye Silks studio looks across Jaine’s Croft and the moorland to Macleods Tables. Shrubs and trees huddle against the old dry stone walls covered with lichen and moss. Little streams rush across the land and there is always colour from the plants, flowers, leaves and berries through the year.  The colours glow in the sunshine or are muted on the misty days giving endless variety.  The sunrises and sunsets are vibrant crazy colours and the green, purple of the Aurora can be seen on the horizon in winter when the weather allows. 


Your scarf will be delivered beautifully packaged in a Skye Silks gift box.
