The Wild Silk Solution


Wild Silk and Wool Shawls

We have many ways to wrap-up this winter. Here we feature shawls made from a blend of wild Eri silk and wool. Most silks are reeled. But Eri silk is spun (like cotton), the result is a silk fibre that gives a warm feeling when used in cloth - especially when combined with wool. These shawls are soft and drape beautifully. We love the selvedge (edge) of these shawls. Handwoven in northern India by artisans from the Avani co-operative. Available in the four naturally-dyed colour combinations shown below.

$129.95/139.95 only at the Granville Island Store.
