This handwoven scarf was inspired by the striations in a lovely, favourite piece of Amethyst. I came across some commercially dyed cotton/rayon, that immediately evoked the correlation between the yarn & the stone. Melding it with some silk/rayon which I had hand-dyed, seemed the perfect marriage. Just like the piece of Amethyst, the scarf goes from a quite striped pattern, blending into the lighter, more monochrome, silk/rayon.
The black warp threads (vertical structure threads) add dimension and structure to the scarf. It's subtle, yet bold.
