Very pretty! Will the dye come out if the scarf gets washed?

After finishing the paintings. They are dried and steamed. After steaming dyes become the part of the fiber. And they can be washed. Sorry, I forgot to mention that step (STEAMING) but my video posted above step 1 explains the whole process.

Thanks for clarifying! The scarf looks beautiful!
