Gray and white colour, beautiful silk shawl hand woven in diamond weave, perfect addition to you historical costume for sun, cold and wind protection for Vendel and Viking period reenactors. You can wrap it around your neck, shoulders or create a head covering of it - in fact it's perfect for it!
It will be also good as a baby wrap.

If you have sleek, shiny hair and have always had problems when you wanted to use a smooth and shiny silk scarves as a veil or head covering, this one is for you - it stays on hair and you can make with it complecated coverings in a turban style - I tried it, if it stays on my hair, it should stay on all. :D
The reason for it is it has been woven of two kinds of silk yarn - shiny and more rough. The effect is a bit like a mix of silk and linen, but with the slight shine of silk and its luxury.

This shawl is a newbie in my shop and is a bit different - it is thicker, more mat in look and touch.

Size :
60 cm wide
around 195 cmlong with fringes
around 180 cm long without fringes

Hand woven from 100% natural silk yarn.
Small diamond twill.
Made of two yarn colours (gray with blueish undertone and natural, undyed colour of silk), together it creates an effect that reminds ice. It a slight shine and looks differently depends of light and its position.

Completely unique design.

Due to the silk is handwoven there can be some irregularity in weaving.
The fabric is hand dyed, so to keep the colours as they are, please wash in cold water with no detergent or dry wash.

Fabrics made in diamond twill have been found in rich Vendel, Migration Period and Viking graves. They were luxurious fabrics, probably imported. The diamond pattern in these archeaological finds is in small size, like you see on this fabric. There are no finds of fabrics wooven in big diamond pattern.
