Velvet Scarf with Willow Branches in Red
Velvet burn-out in my pussy-willows pattern. The devorè, velvet has a sheer silk chiffon backing dyed a red tone, with a rayon pile hand-painted with dyes in my watercolor style. The vivid colors are applied with brushes and allowed to spread and blend within the pattern.
This scarf was pre-washed as part of the dying and hand-painting process. A cold gentle machine cycle followed by a hot dryer will make it softer. It may be ironed on the reverse side.
The sewn hems are rolled-edges.
•The fabric is 50% silk backing with 50% rayon pile:
All natural materials make it luxuriously soft.
