The background is – of course – an Arlee special.
The circle is 3″ diameter, tie-dyed silk. Made by tying a wooden bead into the centre of a silk square and then dyeing with Colorhue silk dyes. I like these dyes for silk because they ‘take’ almost instantly, making them perfect for shibori. I can’t seem to find a UK supplier who still sells this type of dye though, and my stocks are running low.
