This silk wool blend scarf has been naturally dyed using cochineal from Mexico, and then redyed with indigo. Cochineal gave the silk wool scarf a beautiful shade of pink, and the indigo created a purple hue. The silk threads in the scarf caught a copper-ish hue and the wool on the scarf caught a beautiful purple shade. The scarf did not catch the color evenly, and has spots of lighter and darker shades. This created a nice marble / tie-dye effect on the scarf. One side of the scarf has the copper purple colors depending on the way the light hits the scarf. on the flip side, it is a subtle purple color.
