"Amour" is from my hand dyed Shibori collection. Using the finest heavy weight Uzbek silk organza, I carefully tie, twist, dip and dye in various color baths to create this light yet durable silk wrap. All wearable art from my collection invites you to wear this dressed up for a special occasion or dress down with your favorite jeans and boots! No rules, wear what makes you feel good! Measurements: 11" x 79"
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 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.
