gold silk

I dyed this tussah silk last weekend and am really pleased with the way it turned out. It seemed kind of dark and raw to start with but it dyed beautifully. The silk absorbed a lot of dye and although you can't see it here, there is actually a lot of variation in the yellows. And it turned out so shiny. I'm thinking maybe one of those celebrity shawls....
