Pale Sky Tencel & Silk Dimity Scarf/ Handwoven
Dimity cloth has been woven since the 1800s, traditionally woven in silk or wool but more recently in cotton. The cloth features narrow raised ribs and most usually was woven in white or off-white.
This is a fun take on the historical cloth: a one-of-a-kind handwoven scarf that was inspired by a "Handwoven" article by Sally Orgren. The warp is primarily made from a fine variegated Tencel* yarn with multiple shades of pale blue, aqua, and gray. Four solid colors of Tencel & silk, including silver gray, charcoal gray, turquoise and pale blue green, were used to create tiny accent stripes across the warp. The scarf was woven with a very fine silver gray silk weft. The weave structure is a mixture of plain weave and tiny twill accent stripes.
Because this scarf was woven with fine threads it has an incredibly light and luxurious hand, and it is long enough to be worn doubled or knotted. It has a small hand-stitched hem on each end.
