After the show

After the live show, during which I had internet problems, I set up an album containing pictures of the felted hats, knit shawls, hand dyed roving, top, and yarns, as well as a little of my hand spun yarn.

This is only a portion of the things I make, but it feels so good to finally be doing a show. Stop by, this is the year for remote shopping and I’ve been very happy to have been able to shop some of the wonderful vendors who participate in this Facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/wafalive

Have a Happy Thanksgiving All.

Snow Dyed Silk Scarves

snow dyeing

Snow dyeing is the process of placing dyes on top of snow with the article to be dyed encased in two layers of snow. As the snow melts the dyes are carried onto the fabric, making beautiful and unique patterns. In the following  I used silk scarves and acid dyes, which I then heat set to ensure color fastness. Care instructions; Hand wash in mild soap and cool water. Iron while still damp using lowest temperature iron setting. Wear and enjoy!

After teaching a workshop in silk painting at a November Fiber Show I had to keep inspiration going, so the snow came just in time to use this different technique when I returned home.

Each of these are different styles of 100% silk, ranging in weight from 8mm (flat crepe and chiffon) to 12mm (crepe de chine  and silk satin) , to the heaviest at 19.5mm ( silk charmeuse.)

The preceding is to answer questions that friends of my daughter had, after seeing her early Christmas present of a flat crepe scarf. If anyone else is interested feel free to contact me. My next planned post will feature my hand dyed/painted inventory of scarves (more pictures to take 🙂 .
