A formal affair in the late 80s, maybe it was your high school bash. One things for sure, there was no shortage of shot silk and taffeta dresses shaking it to Madonnas Like a prayer on the dance floor.
Shot silk dates back to the early 7th Century. A technique of weaving fabrics alternating the colours on the warp and weft silk threads. The combination of at least two colours created an iridescent shadow like effect on the fabric. Consequently, shot silk is also known as changeant, a French word meaning changeable.
The technique used to knit this scarf whilst knitted not woven manages to replicate a woollen version of a silk classic.
This scarf is ethically made at our little family factory in East Brunswick. Made from surplus Australian lambs wool.
