Double Your Pleasure

As the long gray days of February continue I am doubling my pleasure by creating and wearing multiple scarves at once.

Wool knit acid dyed itajime wrapped with Stone washed crepe screen, deconstructed and hand painted.
I love how this looks like a flower when wrapped. It is very comfortable and warm.

Each scarf has the same serged edging so those colors act to unify them. I also used the same acid dyes on each of them so they are linked in that way too. It was my first venture screening acid dyes and despite soaking in vinegar to avoid having the sodium alginate clump it still was more of a challenge to remove than it is with MX and soda ash. Part of that may be the surface of the stone washed crepe. I will have to continue to experiment.

Stone Washed Crepe
Wool Knit Jersey

The stone washed circle scarf is 72" and can be wrapped three times around your neck.

The wool knit jersey is shorter and can be wrapped twice.
