***A Great Additional Discount Is Available!!---Click on my Name Above ( "Listed by...") to learn about my Multi-Sale Discount Offer in my Closet Profile*** This beautiful Wrap/Scarf is a creation of incredibly talented Fiber Artist Laverne Zabielski, who has been Shibori (Arashi Style) dyeing fabric for more than a decade. To call this a "Pink Scarf" is like calling the "Eifel Tower", well, 'just' a tower. On a billowy cloud of watercolor hues of Rose with occasional hints of pale Yellow; Orchids, Lilies and Chrysanthemums every shade of Pink from Pale to Deep Plum are represented. This lovely masterpiece is 100% Silk, and cleverly stitched for secure placement. Worn around the neck with ends front; simply place your head through the center opening and Voila! The strongest winds will not be able to blow your scarf away. Simply shifting the ends to the side will allow the wrap to drape over your shoulder while your opposite arm has a convenient opening for freedom of movement. Even with all of these capabilities, this lovely fabric is so light and ethereal it still serves well for any style of elegant classic wear for the head, neck and body. It is new and unworn, in pristine condition, and completely hand-washable. In 2004, Laverne received her MFA in writing from Spalding University in Louisville, Kentucky and studied Japanese Shibori Silk dyeing with Arturo Alonzo Sandoval at the University of Kentucky. In 1998, her 26 year old son had a paralyzing accident and she began to place her experiences in the intensive care waiting room into the silk she was dyeing. The Shibori technique she uses is based on manipulating the fabric by wrapping it around a pole or rope then placing the dye on the cloth. The fabric resists the dye and this creates the patterns. The colors are set by steaming on the stove in her kitchen. When she first began, her studio was in an old pole barn. During the evening she processed the silk she had dyed earlier in the day. She loved hanging the freshly rinsed silks in the barn, "...the contrast between the rawness of the wood, its roughness and the softness of the silk, sensuously moving as the wind blew through the cracks in the barn..." Laverne's story continues---Allow her wondrous work of art to be a part of your unfolding life story.
