Fabric: 70% merino wool / 30% silk
Advice on vegetable dyeing: Animal fibres (wool, silk, alpaca) allow you to obtain colours that are generally more vivid than on cellulosic fibres (cotton, linen, hemp, etc.). Wash this scarf in a bath of warm water with a soap like Marseille soap and soda crystals. For the mordanting step, use alum (25%) and cream of tartar (5%) to be dissolved in hot water. Leave to soak overnight. Finally, rinse well and let dry before dyeing.
