More shibori

folded shibori scarf 003


This is a scarf I didn’t like the look of when it was finished.  It was a simple  stripe easy ikat and plain colour , but I didn’t like the colours.  You can still see faint evidence of the stripes where the dye took differently.  This time I tried a folding technique of shibori after I overdyed the whole scarf black and then used a discharge on the  edges.  It is a plain weave of 30/2 silk sett at 34 epi.  

The black overdye took unevenly and the discharge was stronger in some parts than others  creating various blues and faded purples.

    A very creative and effective fix for an initial result you didn’t care for. Beautiful!
