Skye Silks is a handweaving and dyeing studio specialising in silk, based on a windswept croft in Dunvegan on the beautiful Isle of Skye. Taking inspiration from the ever changing colours of the landscape, the misty skies, lochs and the sea, Jaine creates elegant contemporary designs from the finest silk yarns and fabrics.
In addition to the hand woven scarves, Jaine creates hand stitched hand dyed ties, hand dyed silk scarves and now has a new range of hand dyed, hand pleated Arashi Shibori silk scarves.
Jaine uses a variety of dye techniques to colour her textiles including painted warps, resist dyeing, vat dyeing and dip dyeing ensuring each piece is unique and has a distinctive Skye Silks design.
Jaine uses a traditional weaving loom which is not mechanised allowing her to have a close connection to the cloth as she weaves using over 30 years of experience and skill to enable her to produce a beautiful handwoven cloth.
