My daughter dyed these habotai silk infinity scarves to look like a rose garden. There are many shades of pink alternating with a soft spring green. These infinity scarves measure 11 inches high by 76 inches in circumference, and they go nicely twice around the neck without being tight at all.
They make lovely gifts just as they are, and they are also great for nuno felting. I have made matching felting fiber sets with these in mind right here.
What's the difference between silk chiffon and habotai silk? Silk Chiffon is a very lightweight crepe-type fabric that felts quickly and doesn't really need to be ironed. It's a bit less shiny.
Habotai silk is closer to what you think of when you think of silk. It has a distinct sheen, and it's a tighter weave. If you are planning to felt it, just know that it will take more work to get the wool fibers through it than silk chiffon. I tend to think it should be ironed after washing it.
