Burgundy jewel silk scarf

By M K Silks, Maureen Kamerick



Out of stock

This scarf is woven from very fine, 30/2 silk. Starting with the undyed skeins, I dye the silk in a closely modulated green and brown palette. Once the scarf is off the loom, I braid the fringe. This gives the piece a more finished, elegant look and also protects the fringe from wear and tear (fraying, etc.) which helps extend the life of the scarf. Silk is a luxurious but also very hardwearing fiber which can be worn in almost all seasons, and because the scarf has a very soft, fine drape, it can be worn both outside with a coat or jacket, or indoors. The price of the scarf includes the shipping.
