A versatile poncho that slips over the head and can be worn also as a shawl or scarf. Made of devoré (burnout) velvet, the fabric is sheer silk chiffon backing dyed black, contrasting with a shimmering rayon velvet pattern.
I call this design Pebbles-in-an-Ocean-Stream. It has been hand painted with dyes using brushed washes of color making each piece one-of-a-kind.
This fabric is washed as part of the burnout and dying and process and so is washable in a cold, gentle cycle after wear. Following with a hot drying cycle will add to its softness.
Silk velvet is the highest quality velvet. Made of natural materials makes it luxuriously soft. This poncho adds just enough covering on a chill evening. It can be paired with a special dress or with jeans.
