Velvet Dragonflies Scarf in Purple
Hand-Painted, With Dragonflies in Purple.
I printed my very own pattern of dragonflies over a pond of water, into white silk-velvet. This created a texture called devorè, sometimes referred to as "burn-out velvet" or "cut velvet." The fabric is sheer silk dyed a turquoise tone with an all-over velvet pattern hand-painted with dyes in blues to a watercolor effect.
This scarf was pre-rinsed as part of the dying and hand-painting process. A cold, gentle cycle will make it softer. A hot dryer will make it fluffier. It may be ironed on the reverse side.
