This beautiful fabric is woven on a striking dark jewel gradation, from midnight blue to rich plum tones and burgundy. The starry night sky is picked out in an undyed natural red peace silk yarn that has a beautiful golden tone to it. It’s natural colours come from the amount of tannins in the leaves that the moths eat.
Peace silk gets its name from the production process in which the butterfly flies away from the cocoon before it’s harvested. This ethical yarn has a very low water footprint and is made from silk leftovers that would otherwise go to landfill. Characteristic nubs and slubs speckle this yarn to give a unique look to each piece of fabric.
This fabric is also woven with BCI organic cotton, by using BCI cotton we ensure that our cotton meets the Better Cotton Initiative’s high standards of environmental, economic and social responsibility. Our BCI cotton is also organic, meaning it is grown with care and without chemicals keeping the land, and farmers, healthy.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Hand washing is recommended, although a silk cycle on a known reliable machine may be used at your own risk. Use a suitable silk detergent. Hang to dry, avoiding direct sunlight and iron on a cool setting.
