Nettle and Japanese Indigo Dyed Silk Chiffon Scarf
This lovely teal scarf is dyed with nettle and japanese indigo leaves. It is made from pure silk chiffon, lightweight, like a feather floating on the wind. It measures 14" x 62". Nettle is a wonderful medicinal plant, it is rich with important minerals like calcium and iron and is very high in protein. A wonderful cleansing herb and activator, it's a great remedy for debility, when the system needs to get moving. The spirit of the Nettle plant is like a old lady with her broom shouting at people to get going, not to just sit around. It can activate dormant energies.. As a dye it creates brilliant 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.
