Vertical Color: Used Sari Silk

The used sari from which this scarf was made has been used in other scarves, too! It speaks to the versatility of recycling material that may be stained, torn, and otherwise not usable as clothing.

This simple design and complementary colors make for a scarf that will blend wonderfully in a casual wardrobe, looking fantastic with jeans and a tee-shirt, or a pencil skirt and a smart sweater. It can also be used with a jacket to keep the chill off.

The fiber content is 100% sari silk, and merino top roving. This scarf will be for sale at the Recycle Santa Fe Arts Festival December 6th and 7th, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Police Box Blue #1

This pull-through scarf is a reflection of my love affair with the color blue. Blue is the most often-cited favorite color by people, but I think my adoration is on a whole new level. Most of my clothes are blue, a large portion of my fiber and fabrics are blue, and walls in my house are blue. I was doubly inspired when I discovered a vendor on Etsy who has Pantone-dyed the blue of Dr. Who’s Tardis. Character aside, it’s a lovely, rich shade of blue.

I’ve showcased the color by playing it — in the form of merino roving — off the sheen of mulberry silk and white merino. I’ve sandwiched the silk between two layers of merino in a cobweb style, which allows the silk to provide texture and color as it peaks through the thinner layers of merino. This scarf is fully reversible with a wonderful sheen and amazing subtle variation in color. It is light, soft, versatile, stylish, and it works to both add style and keep a chill off when pulled through.
