The threads woven into this funky wrap are a balanced mix of linens, cotton and hand dyed merino yarns. The warp is pure linen, some dyed with indigo, and cotton, woven in hand dyed merinos in rich orange and brown, with blocks of hand dyed with indigo pure linen. The merinos are woven in designs of chevron and twills, the indigo linen in tabby.
Soft wool and linen feels.

I wash each piece as soon as it leaves the loom. This evens up the fibres, cleans them and fluffs them up to look their best. Your weaving doesn't need excessive washing, wool is great for repelling dirt and moisture. To wash, by hand gently, a non chemical liquid works best, then a quick spin around the washing machine to get out the excess water or roll in a towel. Give the weaving a shake and gently pull the fibres across the width of the weaving. Hang in the breeze over a towel on the line until dry... Easy!!
Rolling up your weaving to travel or store will prevent and remove creases.
Word to the wise...
If you ever catch any of the fibres, gently pull the weaving widthwise and the fibres will disappear back into the fabric.
