Crushed silk is wonderful, full of texture and refracted light in the beauty of a heavy weight painted silk habotai . These scarves can be worn long like a necklace or doubled around the neck like a collar.  this piece is emerald green with brushmarks of red, blue, rust, yellow and turquoise.

The crushed effect is reinstated when you need to wash the scarf – by hand –  and then by screwing it into a tight ball and tying it up with string or elastic, or ribbon – to dry naturally. VERY low maintenance and quite fun.
