silk tie dyeing

So I was wondering if the lavender scarf I found at the thrift shop the other day was silk. There wasn't a tag, and it *felt* like silk, but it's tough to tell sometimes, even though my fingertips have gotten pretty good at picking out natural vs. man-made fibers.

Seeing as I spent a whole dollar on the scarf, what did I have to lose? I chopped up a few men's silk ties, rolled them up with the scarf and set up the boiling pot, and waited with breath held.

Yep, it's silk. And I am quite pleased with the end result!
