Throughout the fall I've been concentrating my dyeing efforts on devore scarves.
These have a silk background with a rayon design on the top. Originally these were just one layer of silk and one of rayon. Some of the rayon is then eaten away by an acid process and you are left with a rayon design and a silk background. In the case of this sample picture, above, from the Dharma website, the yellow/gold dots are the rayon and the blue/green is the background. They are beautiful and when you add the dye they really pop!
To add the color I've been using the Alter Ego Dyes that you can now get from Dharma Trading Company .
With these you can dye the silk one color and the rayon a completely different color in one simple step. You can choose any of the standard colors for the silk and for the rayon but I like to mix my own colors from the standard ones. They don't always turn out the way I planned but they always look great. I'll post some photos tomorrow.
