Shibori Play

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day here in Maryland - I had a great time playing and experimenting with dyeing. This is a piece of silk chiffon that I'm going to use for some nuno felt later this week. The raspberry wool and teal silk I hope to use was the inspiration for these colors. Although it's a little darker than I usually prefer, the fabric is so sheer that it is difficult to capture it's beauty in a photograph.


  1. This is absoulutely GORGEOUS!!

  2. It is beautiful the way it is...using it in nuno would lose the stunning detail, but would be fabulous too!! love it!

  3. Clasheen - Thank you for the compliment! It was really fun and I wish I had more time to do more!

    Andrea - I'm so flattered by your compliment - I had planned to use it for a spiral scarf and quite a lot of the pattern would still show but it was too small -- needed to be a 36" square but I found out too late so I'll have to figure out what else to do with it - felt it on top of wool for a nuno pillow perhaps? What do you think? I know it would shrink but if I don't cut it, it may be fun once it is scrunched -- with some stitching and/or beads, etc. added?
