17 part Turks head all cotton custom colors #100
Pearl grey and a subtle shade of eggplant go together quite nicely. It's always a surprise when the material comes out of the dyebath to see the various shades of color. After rinsing out the excess dye the color sometimes fades which makes interesting combinations possible.
The base material is Darcie 3 mm cotton cord which has a braided cover visible in the photo. The smooth finish brings out the pattern of the knot and the color lending a more contemporary appearance to the finished piece.
