Fuzzy thought bubbles

I come across some unusual fabrics in my search for interesting materials for The Scarf Moment and I count this print amongst the most unusual. It's a 1940s silk with a design that features what look to me like thought, or speech bubbles that you'd find in a comic strip. There are no characters expressing these thoughts and not even any words in these speech balloons. Just scribbles. A very enigmatic print. I've made some scarves with this fabric using a cashmere backing, and some, like the one shown here, with a sheer wool and silk voile that allows the print to show through the back.
