Scarves for Woolworth

I've been dyeing lots of scarves with the new method I learned of ice dyeing/microwave style. It only does one at a time (you can do more but I like the variety) and only takes 5 minutes so I can pick a different combination each time. I've accumulated a lot of dyes over the years and have so many choices. I usually use 3 dyes per scarf and take into consideration the blending of 2 colors which can and does happen. For example....I never use complimentary colors together to avoid getting a brown.

I've hung them on my design wall to get a count and also to see the colors I have and where I need to fill in. With the holiday season upon us, I'm hoping to sell them at Woolworth..they make wonderful Christmas fingers crossed.

While in Germany, recently...walking down the streets and voila!...A Woolworth and I do believe it was like the original Woolworth. Woolworth used to be a "5 & 10" as we knew them as kids...a little bit of everything and very inexpensive. We had to walk through this one and it was the same format....very fun to see.

Have a wonderful day...til next time.


  1. WOW...your scarfs are BEAUTIFUL!!!! They would make nice Christmas gifts...and I'm sure others will think that as well. You're right about the Woolworth's 5 & 10!!! I was just telling my hubby when I had my last class at college I would stop at Woolworth's for a burger and chocolate coke (they had a grill in ours right up front) before I headed to my job at the doctor's office! We were talking about our favorite burgers as kids! HA
