Prism Thai Eri Silk
Elegant handspun, natural dyed, handwoven scarf.
Warp (vertical) yarn is 100% mulberry silk. Weft yarn is 100% eri hand spun silk. Eri silk is only cultivated in parts of northern Thailand and northern India. Unlike most filament silks, eri has short staples and must be spun like cotton, resulting in a soft, fluffy wool-like yarn.
When dyed with botanic dyestuffs, the eri and mulberry silk yarn result in subtle but rich colors. Unisex look, suitable for both casual and dressy wear. Can be worn in spring, fall and winter.
Size: 43cm x 174cm plus fringe
Our natural dyeing produces 8-9 hues: Natural (undyed), Oat (cream), Latte (light brown), Chamois (yellow ochre), Olive, Dusty Pink, Aubergine, Teal Blue and Espresso (brown/black).
Each piece is truly one-of-a-kind. Photos show a selection of scarves using eri yarn hand spun in the area around Phrao where Warm Heart is located. This yarn has substantial thick/thin contrast and produces a rich, nubbly texture in the weaving. The resulting scarves are quite heavy, ranging from 200-240gms.
