Indigo Dyeing Fall 2016 – scarves

I rinsed out a few of the scarves I recently indigo dyed. I couldn’t wait to see the designs created by the various resists I used.

Three of them are rayon bamboo. These scarves have a lovely drape and feel luxurious.

The indigo is a nice intense blue and each of the three scarves has very different patterning.

I especially like the design below, it is very angular and modern looking.

I also over dyed two viscose scarves. Earlier in the year, I dyed them with Procion Mx dyes. One was dyed in turquoise and the other in blue. The results for both scarves were very pastel and not to my taste.

Now they are a beautiful soft denim blue. They would look great with jeans, a white shirt and a blazer.
