Detail of Art Yarn Collar

There’s a nice balance in securing the wild, asymmetrical fibers of an art yarn piece with a simple button, in this case a big vintage mother-of-pearl one. In this detail you can really see how shimmery the silk fibers look and how the strips of silk fabric add textured “tags” here and there.  I started this piece intending it to be primarily white, black and copper… and got carried away.

Two more views, above and below, showing different looks of the same scarf in different positions and with different sides of the 2-button closure.

  1. I really like how in the Curly Locks piece and this piece, you can really see how these are “wearable art”. Not just in the colors, textures & patterns, but also in the shape of the actual collar. So nice!
