Holiday Lite I - it's very light and sheer but not as delicate as it looks! Hand-dyed using one of many Shibori techniques, I used very light Uzbek silk organza gaz (gauze) folding and then dipping in the dye bath multiple times. Wear it solo or stack it up together with "Holiday Lite II" for a bigger yet "airy" statement.
Measurements: 12" x 68"
Please note that the photographs of Holiday Lite I reflect a bit more color saturation than it does in natural light. Due to the sheerness of the gauze organza, the color comes through stronger in photographs.
Care Instructions for Silk:
Silk is a natural protein fiber. Silk organza has natural sizing and holds it’s structure quite well. Silk can be hand washed. No need to dry clean. Prepare a luke-warm bath using gentle soap or detergent (I like natural olive oil soap without fragrance). Gently hand wash the silk and rinse well. Gently remove excess water in a towel or a small home spinner (I have a home spinner for all my felts and any gentle fabric). While damp, use an iron on silk setting and iron the silk while blocking the shape. The original sizing immediately returns, and you are ready to go!
NOTE: Do not use harsh detergents as it can remove the sizing of the organza. Unless, of course, you want something less stiff and more fluid, then remove the sizing with a tiny bit of orvus paste or synthropol.
