This hand dyed, hand woven fine silk scarf has a hand painted and dip dyed warp silk warp in two sections. A soft lilac rippled section next to streaks of mint greens, turquoise, blues and a touch of violet, woven with a mint weft giving a watery look and a light soft silky hand.
Made with the finest quality silk yarns at 60 threads per inch, the 2/1 twill weave pattern gives a lightweight scarf with a beautiful drape and sheen and a slight colour difference on each face of the cloth.
Each piece is individually designed ensuring a one-off artisan textile and is finished with hand hemstitching and a Skye Silks label.
Due to the nature of the dyeing method, each piece is unique.
Your scarf will be delivered beautifully packaged in a Skye Silks gift box.

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.
