spacer Clothing: Gray Square Scarf with "Patricia" Written In Cursive spacer  

Narrative: Gray square scarf with “patricia” written in cursive on one corner.

On a trip with Nicki Tripodes in 1999 to Goodwill stores to buy for "The Closet Upstairs" I came across this for a few dollars. It has traveled with me from Boston, MA, to Portland, OR, to New York City.

Rayon is a manufactured regenerated cellulose fiber. It is made from purified cellulose, primarily from wood pulp, which is chemically converted into a soluble compound. It is then dissolved and forced through a spinneret to produce filaments which are chemically solidified, resulting in synthetic fibers of nearly pure cellulose. Because rayon is manufactured from naturally occurring polymers, it is considered a semi-synthetic fiber. Specific types of rayon include viscose, modal and lyocell, each of which differs in manufacturing process and properties of the finished product.
