You may remember this Habotai silk scarf that I hand dyed. I bought two of these 90x90cm square scarves and dyed one in purples as above and the other was in turquoise and green. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo of it. I decided to cut the green one in half to make two scarves.
I used 18.5 micron merino wool in cloud layout and used viscose and sari silk fibers on top. There is a frilly edge on two sides. I love how the Habotai silk crinkles. Habotai is similar to Margilan Excelsior and has a denser weave than silk gauze which makes it crinkle more.
For the other scarf, I used a different color for the wool and instead of one color of viscose, I used three in a random layout. I also added sari silk fibers, tussah silk, and ramie.
The scarves are very light and are reversible and will be available for sale soon!
