Eco dyeing #2
A Wrap/Shawl/Large Scarf in hand felted tissue silk and merino/silk roving, hand dyed using Eucalyptus cinerea.
This silk and merino scarf is hand dyed with eucalyptus leaves which displayed a deep pink blush at the end of winter.
Hand dyed with eucalyptus bark picked up on a bushwalk, this silk and wool scarf has added merino wool slashes where the bark may have peeled of the trunk.
One of the first signs of Spring, wattle leaves and blossoms were collected to hand dye this silk and merino wool scarf.
These smaller scarves are now available at the CraftACT Shop, Level 1, North Building, 180 London Circuit, Civic, ACT.
