Completion and mailing will be within seven days of your order. Due to the time and energy involved in creating these flags, prepayment in full is required for these sets.  Don't like the rainbow scheme?  Let me tailor a set of pinwheel flags with your chosen colors.  Specify your desired colors in the comment section during checkout.

All of my silks are professionally steam set and rinsed to remove excess dye.  The dyes will not run and the flags can be washed.

The process:  Each piece of silk is stretched on a stretcher frame and the design is drawn onto the silk with gutta resist then heat set.  This enables me to block off areas of color.  Fluorescent dyes are then applied to the blocked off areas and allowed to dry.  Once they are dry the silk is cured for a couple of days prior to being steamed in my Jacquard vertical steamer.  I steam the silks for about 3 hours.  This permanently sets the dyes.  Once steamed they are allowed to cure for another day or two before they are rinsed and weighted.
