Soy Silk Scarf

The soy silk scarf I showed earlier while on the loom is completely finished - got it washed yesterday and twisted the fringe this morning, decided to add some seed beads to the fringe for a bit of sparkle. The close-up picture is of the front and back to show how different it looks on each side. Soy silk has a lovely feel to it, beautiful drape and shrinks very little but for the cost compared to silk, tencel or bamboo it's not worth it, the others cost substantially less per pound and are much nicer in my opinion. Perhaps the price will come down in the future as with all new things.
