Silk Stole 400J
After weaving a stole with this pattern using a white background and off-white pattern, I wanted to make one with more contrast.
This stole is also woven entirely of silk and has the border pattern called "Blooming Leaf" (which is an old traditional pattern that was used on coverlets). This time I used black as the background and the creamy off-white for the pattern.

Imagine the reaction you'll get when you make your entrance wearing this! The creamy softness will rest lightly against your skin and you will feel truly pampered. You can wear it over your shoulders like a stole or, for a change, it is lightweight enough to be worn as a scarf, as you can see by looking at the pictures.
The dimensions of this stole are a generous 19" x 68" (48cm x 173cm) plus an additional 10" (25cm) of carefully hemstitched fringe for an even more luxurious drape. The overshot pattern at each end of the stole measures 15" (38cm) in length.
As part of my finishing process, this piece has been gently hand-washed, wrapped in towels and pressed to remove as much water as possible, then hung on a line to dry. After straightening the fringes, I ironed the wrinkles out. Alternatively, you may have it dry-cleaned.
