A soft linen wrap woven in seven shades of pure linen, some hand dyed with indigo, in nine blocks with highlights of gold silk. Five different weaving designs are included in this piece, twills tabby and birds eye variations. Wearable in summer and winter, linen has warmth and also coolness for hot temperatures and softens as it is worn. Linen is a favorite yarn for me to weave.
This piece has a soft linen feel and soft drape.
Width – 60cm
Length – 186cm with hand twisted tassles
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.
