Comfrey Leaves and Japanese Indigo Plant Dyed Silk Chiffon Scarf (bright)
This vibrant and bright blue and green scarf is dyed with organic comfrey and japanese indigo leaves. All plants we use for dye are organically grown and processed on our farm, single source dye farm, farm grown color. This scarf is made from pure silk chiffon, is lightweight, like a feather floating on the wind. It measures 14" x 62". Comfrey is a very powerful healing plant. It's latin name, Symphytum, means "to grow together" which is exactly what it does, it knits wounds and damaged tissue back together. I feel the spirit of the Comfrey plant does this too, it helps us grow together, in relationship, in community, wherever it is needed in our life, it can remind us that we can grow together in the face of distress or change. As a dye it creates soft yellows which after dipped in indigo give amazing shades of green. Wearing fibers dyed with plants is a wonderful way to wear your medicine, to remember the healing connection we have with plants.
