This silk diamond weave shawl has a weight and heft that allows for a serious gorgeous drapery, yet is lightly warm for milder weather. It has a dramatic presence and solidity unlike many silk textiles such as chiffon. It is not raw silk, but feels firm and strong. It is a certain look, almost a twill-like feel. With wearing I imagine the weave will give a little and soften, but will retain its excellence. I love it.
This was purchased because I have a very simple pale blue dress and wanted to dress it up. I was a great purchase because it it is light and not silk which can be slithery. I loved the pattern and the colors were subdued but striking.
The shawl is a very lovely, shimmering combination of colors, extremely light-weight and beautifully executed!
"Art is the most eclectic form of expression of ideas and beauty, and this is what attracts me the most to weaving."
