Working on the current “Rhapsody Rose” series has been instructive — and as I’ve experimented with varying type, color and amount of different fibers, sometimes the result shimmers with an opalescent quality of movement and reflection of light.   An abundance of silk and cashmere brings a quality of weightlessness and delicate softness to the drape, so they are silky rather than bulky, and they do not add  much warmth when draped loosely; but these scarves when wrapped close are cozy and warm, and in this way they’re very versatile.  I’m aiming to create some Rhapsody Rose scarves that will have this opalescent quality and a shimmering radiance of different colors.
