Silk Shawl

I layered many natural sources while steam bundle dyeing this silk shawl.
Red and yellow onion skins along with hollyhock gave lots of color, while rust and marigold flowers grounded the palette.


Toddler Knitted Hat


This hat is for my favorite two year old! Made of a #madelinetosh blend of wool, silk and cashmere, the hat is super soft and shiny. Used the pattern for the ear flap hat from#purlbee. Warm and cozy, purple perfect for an autumn day stroll and for keeping toasty on a cold winter day!

Silk Scarves





These scarves are so luxurious yet offbeat. Spring is in the air and the lovely scarves blow in the air behind you as you walk through the streets and park. They are steam dyed with botanicals. All natural dyes with a very painterly feel.

Embroidered Camisole

I had been dragging around an inspiring image of embroidery work that I had cut out from the New York Times made by  Iviva Olenick http://www.ivivaolenick.com/.
So when I saw that she was teaching a class at Third Ward (now shuttered) I took her workshop. Loved her teaching style and her generous help.
This battered camisole became my canvas for natural dye work and embroidery.
Shira Weinberger took this lovely shot. More of her  stunning photography can be found at http://www.shiraweinberger.com/
