My latest handwoven scarf uses Eri silk as the background. I was interested in the story behind the making of Eri silk. It is also known as ‘peace silk’ as it is processed without killing the silkworm. The silkworm feeds on castor plants which gives the silk a natural copper red colour and results in lustre, strength and softness. As with all silk, it is warm in winter and cool in summer. The pattern on the scarf is made with silk which I dyed. The result is a delight to wear in all seasons to complement any outfit.

 This scarf has now been sold.
