This is a handwoven silk scarf that I picked up on our last morning in Vancouver, from a lovely shop on Granville Island. I seem to have misplaced the receipt and can’t remember the name. They have gorgeous handmade silk garments from different artists and even a box of live silkworms on the counter busy chowing down on mulberry leaves. (Materfamilias, they also sell gorgeous silk yarns!!)
I love the subtle colors (all in my palette) and patterns. The yarns are very lightweight and soft.
Here’s a shot in the sunlight to try to better show you the colors. But the beauty of this weave is that different colors predominate in different light. It doesn’t show much in the sunlight, but there’s actually a nice olive green in that mid section.
More Alaska and Vancouver posts coming, stay tuned…
