gearing up for summer
As March begins, I am diving headlong into a few months worth of hardcore scarf production. I've got a few major orders on the go, new designs for summer, and new retail clients to please. Most shops order their summer stock (in Atlantic Canada, that means the tourist season) for the middle of May so they are well stocked for the summer and fall season. The scarf pictured here is a new design for summer (also featured a few blogs back in a different colour) handwoven with cotton and raw silk and over dyed so that the silk takes on colour (in this case, the graded stripes of blue/purple). Very lightweight and elegant for summer evenings, it can also be worn in the spring or fall because the raw silk in the warp will act as an insulator when there is a chill in the air......this scarf is for sale in my Etsy shop.
