2nd Woven Shibori scarf – finally finished
I removed the weft shibori ties, then pressed the ends of the scarf to make fringe triming and twisting easier. Once the fringes were done, I rinsed the scarf in a vinegar bath to neutralize the alkaline indigo bath, then into a second rinse with a small drop of hair conditioner which softens the silk and brings back the shine.
I was surprised to see that even with the pressing and washing the pleats and holes from the shibori ties remain in the scarf and to me give it a lovely texture. I love this technique and despite the time consuming nature I will do this again.
