This beautiful butterfly scarf is a fresh splash of greens, light and fun and feminine. The butterflies are painted in soft shades of blue and turquoise and flutter in a spring sea of organic greens. The whole surface of the scarf is covered with a very delicate and subtle patterning.

There is a fine sprinkling of gold dust on the ends of this scarf…small dots of sparkling light that twinkle and catch your eye.

The butterfly is a symbol of metamorphosis – a complete change of form, symbolising our spiritual journey.

I created this silk in several layers using the batik technique. Once completed it was rolled up and steamed for 3 hours to permanently fix the dyes in the fabric.

It measures approx. 45cm x 140cm ( 18″ x 56″) and has rolled edges.

Please give your silk scarf lots of TLC by washing it gently by hand in warm water with a touch of shampoo. Rinse until clear and then roll up in a towel to absorb most of the moisture. Then iron from the reverse with a very clean iron on a medium to hot setting.
