This rich magenta color was created by a dye pot of cochineal with some soda ash which brings out the blue undertones in the cochhineal. These triple layer silk scarves were woven in a fair trade village near the east coast of India. The loom has two warps, and a third layer is inserted during the leaving process, creating horizontal lines of silk in between two layers of organza. All the layers of the scarf are woven at once, resulting in a closed tube which can be pulled apart and fashioned in many ways. It allows you to create your style with a two dimensional and three dimensional form. After dyeing, the scarf has been neutralized in vinegar after dyeing, washed and pressed. You can hand wash and iron it. It is colorfast. It is scarf for all seasons, and the third layer adds texture. It is long enough to create a cowl by tying the two ends together and wrapping it around your neck twice. Dimensions: 68″ Long, 24″ Wide
