A steel grey silk scarf with a variegated blue stripe reminiscent of a grey day on Skye with the blue sky peeping through.
Made with the finest silk yarns, the greys of the warp have been vat dyed in steel grey, whilst the narrow stripes have been resist dyed to give shades of blue with white.
The weft has been hand dyed in a soft silver giving this elegant scarf a subtle irridescence of silver and slate as the light catches it.
The scarf has been meticulously hand woven in a 2/1 twill which gives a slight colour difference to each side of the scarf. It is finished with hand hemstitching, a fringe and a Skye Silks label.
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.
The Isle of Skye is also known as The Misty Isle due to having misty days with shades of greys and silvers in the sky together with steely greys and slate blues in the lochs and sea.
Jaine has created The Misty Collection celebrating the colours of the sky, mountains and lochs on the Isle of Skye in the ever changing weather.
Your scarf will be delivered beautifully packaged in a Skye Silks gift box.
