Yarrow Shield: Raw Silk Knit Scarf
One of a kind Yarrow-printed scarf, made from medium-weight raw silk knit cloth. Cloth is recliamed/second hand, and something I have never found before! It has a textural, rough/natural, matte look, and grows softer as it is washed and worn. The cloth itself feels unique and special; it had some tiny holes here and there because it is secondhand. I added machine darning to each scarf to mend the little spots, which to me adds to its handmade, hand-touched feel. These are really unique pieces and I'm excited to share them. I chose Yarrow as the print element, for its protective qualities. I envision this scarf acting as a protective drape, infused with plants and created with love. Can be worn around the neck or over the hair.
I recommend washing all silk with eucalan soap, which conditions and protects silk fiber.
