"Savannah" - luxury all around! This beautiful wrap of heavy weight hand woven Uzbek silk organza is hand dyed in my studio using one of many Japanese Shibori hand dyeing techniques. The silk is full of volume and the black & white Shibori design of "Savannah" offers a stunning statement for the sophisticated wearer. Uzbek silk is made of strong silk fiber, yet it's delicate, light and will delight all year around.
Measurements: 17" x 82"
Care Instructions for Silk Organza:
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: Please do not use harsh detergents as it can remove the natural 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.
