Exciting 3D effects in silk and wool can be achieved in a number of ways. Some possibilities are presented here.

In the first picture: The Shibori-classic.
Shibori is a general term for various traditional Japanese binding techniques. The usually undyed fabric is bound and/or folded in a more or less artistic fashion, and finally dyed. The dye then does not (or only slightly) enter into the tightly bound areas, and fantastic colour patterns arise. The heat applied during the dyeing process also permanently fixes the three-dimensional textures which result from the binding - as long as they are not ironed away before cooling off.

For this attractive spiky appearance many small dried beans were tightly tied into a scarf from Pongee 08.
After this, it is dyed in in a cooking pot with diluted blue steam fixable silk colour. The silk is dried completely while it is still tied, only then are the beans removed again.
The tied areas remain white and the heat "pleats" the small peaks quite permanently.
The shape of the small rhombuses is noteworthy: although the fabric was tied unsystematically, there appears to be a parallel arrangement.
Just zoom in to have a closer look!
