Day 17 – Stripe Library 30-Day Challenge

I wanted to use my Colour Harmonies (multi-coloured tops) to make simple stripes and play with colour movement. I have also been holding out to play with silks and stripes. So, here is the first attempt using Silk Hankies. I love the rick-rack effect! I used Silk Mesh on the back and once again, great effects to be had here, and great drape. There is only one-layer in the stripes, hence the Silk Mesh to stabilize its structure. Do you like the stripes running horizontal or vertical???

Silk Mesh in colourway Regrowth has been used on the backside. Plus detail photo.

Detail showing highlight stripes using Silk Hankies. Love the rick-rack effect that happens because of the wool shrinkage.

Materials: Silk Mesh in Regrowth. Hand dyed superfine Merino tops in Colour Harmonies: Heartache, Regrowth, Kimberly Blue, Red Earth, Sea Grass, Southern Seas, Lavish, Tamarillo. Silk Hanies in Heartache, Sea Grass.
