Our silk scrunchies in Verde Obscuro are made using 100% 19mm Charmeuse silk and peace silk thread. They are then naturally dyed using Goldenrod and minerals. Natural dyes are safer for your skin and the environment. Silk helps promote hairs shine and reduces breakage. Our scrunchies are perfect to pull up your hair or wear on your wrist. These measure approximately four inches wide.
Goldenrod is also considered a weed and wild flower. It can be used to treat head colds, inflammation and to clear the sinuses. You can make a tea out of both the leaves and the flower. If you are foraging these plants, please be aware of the bees and avoid cutting too many in the same area. Although they grow plentiful, we need to be conscious of the tiny wildlife that benefit from its gifts too. We like to cut the branches that have already fallen over. We use the same dye bath for our material, and it makes a range of colors, from vibrant yellows to deep forest greens. Please consult a medical professional before adding a new herb to your diet.
Care: Our materials are handwashed several times in hypoallergenic clear soap, hung dry and then steamed before packaging. Your scrunchie can be hand washed with cold water and mild soap then hung dry. Warm iron if needed on the silk/delicate setting.
