Moonlight from the Dye Pot

For the past couple of weeks, I've been dyeing silks.  Last week the colour was from Brazilwood, and I got a range of beautiful corals and pinks.  This week, I'm working with Logwood.  The first pieces out of the dye pot were a gorgeous purple with gray undertones.  The next group?  One of the most magical colours I've ever coaxed onto fiber.  It's soft plum with a silver shimmer.  It looks like moonlight.  One of our massage therapists started to weep when she saw it.  This photo can't really convey it fully, but you get the idea.  There are camisoles, chemises and scarves...

I received a note today from a woman who ordered a camisole after seeing this post. Here's what she says:

"My beautiful silk tank arrived! Sarah, it is absolutely beautiful! Thank you. Moonlight, exactly the color and effect of it.

Also, you were right about the size being just right. I wish all my clothes were like this in color and beauty."
