This one of a kind scarf is 100% silk and has been sun dyed using sumac, raspberry leaves, ash pods and other assorted botanicals. It is approximately 8 inches by 72 inches in size and has rich deep red dyed into the silk. Very symbolic of Canada. It is durable, washable and can be ironed using a hot steam iron if it becomes necessary. The dyes are completely permanent; this scarf will not shrink, fade or lose its beauty over time.
