While I was in NYC, I bought a scarf from an artist, Lydia Crespo, at Chelsea Market. We talked, and when she found out that I sewed, she asked if I would be interested in her silk scraps. She has a lot and hates to throw them away. I assured her that even though I didn’t need them, one or more of you might love to have them.
Email Lydia (firstname.lastname@example.org) or click here to go to her site and email from there.
I bought the Black Gold Speckled Raw Silk Cape.
Could I have made it myself? Yes. Would I ever make it myself, and speckle it? Probably not. Am I glad I bought it? Absolutely!!! This is the only scarf I own (and I own way too many scarves) that stays where I put it. And it is neither too warm nor not warm enough.
This is also the only scarf I own that has slits that are useful and that disappear when I wear the scarf like a scarf.
So, there you go. If you are interested in Lydia’s scraps, I hope you get some!
Truly a gorgeous scarf. Looks perfect for you.
It’s a cape & a scarf? How cool is that! I love multi purpose items!
I would love having them! I am trying to get a business started making a pattern I have for a scarf that will fit in your purse. I have a great name and other ideas, just need help with fabric.this would be perfect. Thx so much for this opportunity
Love the scarf! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
Silk scrapes would be an awesome addition to my stash.
I would enjoy them. I have a silk skirt I am planning on turning into a quilt.
Be sure to contact Lydia directly. Look for her email in the body of the post. Good luck!
