chiffon, French pronunciation: [ʃi.fɔ̃], from the french word for a cloth or rag, is a lightweight, balanced plain-woven sheer fabric woven of alternate S- and Z-twist crepe (high-twist) yarns. The twist in the crepe yarns puckers the fabric slightly in both directions after weaving, giving it some stretch and a slightly rough feel.
silk chiffon is the perfect fabric for a spring or summer scarf and takes paint and dye beautifully..it is sheer and soft. i have been having a blast hand painting scarves and playing with colors.
ombré–adjective–shaded or graduated in tone: said of a color
these scarves have an ombre effect, which is such fun to do–i love the look!! what do you think?
as i mentioned in a previous post, i was selected to give a gift to food network star, giada de laurentiis through the exclusive artisan group. i am thrilled with this opportunity, and i hope she loves and wears my gift!
