i want to ask some advice. i’m getting married this summer, and i plan on making my bridesmaids silk scarves to wear during the ceremony. (i’m not having them buy a dress - just wear all black - so these scarves will tie their looks together). i was planning on having them each hold two calla lillies tied together with a blueish purple ribbon. i was going to buy the silk for the scarves and the ribbon in the same color, but i can’t find the yarn i’m looking for locally (i’m leaving for a month in a week and i need to take it with me to start the scarves), but i found the yarn i’d like in an eggplant color, and also in a natural color. how difficult/time consuming/expensive is it to dye silk? or maybe i should just go slightly more purple with my color scheme and just buy the eggplant color since that would be super easy?? what would you do?
i’m asking you because everyone here that i would ask is receiving one of the scaves, and i want them to be a surprise!! (oh, and none of my friends here would know about dyeing silk). thanks in advance!
