Libra - new for this Fall! The Fall colors are really coming though with Libra, using one of my own hand painted habotai silks created in my studio and the nuno felting technique. Hand painting silks requires a different process than hand dyed silks, using French dyes and a lengthy steaming process to secure permanent color. Libra is reversible and has a quieter "back" side using fine Italian merino wool and hand dyed magellan silk to create a beautiful shine. Wear it tightly around your neck as the weather cools or as a skinny wrap to drape over your shoulders on cooler days and evenings.

Measurements:  8" x 70" 

*Care instructions:  Hand wash is COLD water (never hot) with very mild detergent. Do not agitate while washing, as the fine layer of wool will continue to shrink – just a short soak and a few dips.  Rinse and gently squeeze out the access water by rolling in a towel. Gently shape it back to its original shape (blocking). While still damp, set your iron on wool setting with steam and press gently to maintain texture. Continue to block in shape while ironing. Dry flat.
