This is a picture of some dyed silk carrier rods.

Basically a waste product of the raw silk making process,they dye beautifully with silk paints and a touch of acrylic with iridescent tinting medium.

After dyeing they are separated with care into many fine layers which are very tactile. They provide a lovely background for embroidery.

I worked on them quite a lot last year and made a series of embroideries, which I called 'Lavender Blue for You', 'Sea Blue' and 'Red Hot Blues'.Now I only have one of them left, but with my digital camera I can keep a lasting record.
