Hand-dyed Handwoven Tencel Shawl/Wrap-1
Hand-dyed Handwoven Tencel Shawl/Wrap-1
24.5" x 86.5"

This extra large shawl was created by first "painting" superfine (sett is 50 ends per inch) Tencel yarn with fiber reactive dyes, then woven in the technique of "on-line shibori", and finally over-dyed in an organic indigo vat (created by me). The colors are beautiful shades of turquoise and navy blues and moss green, which adds a glint of gold. Although these wraps are super time-consuming to dye and weave, they are the perfect traveling piece, as the tencel has the sheen and weight of silk, but does not wrinkle.
