Triple Dip

A new cotton and linen scarf, long and soft, dip dyed in three different color baths.  The rosepath designs were woven in a teal blue perle cotton, then overdyed. The coffee colored  ends of the scarf were dip dyed in dark brown, then  dark blue, and finally the whole scarf was immersed in a bath of
butternut brown.

Thanks! I struggled to get the color right in the pictures, a rich espresso brown. This still looks a little more plummy than it should.

Gorgeous!
Colour is amazing, and the inlay areas an intriguing detail.
