The lush wrap is hand woven in hand dyed possum and merino yarns grown here in Aotearoa. Blocks of brilliant blue, rich brown, and mustard and a strip of pink sari silk. The warp is linen and cotton. A variety of weaving designs in each block of this piece, chevron, birds eye and the cathedral window pattern (named by me..)
Super soft and wool feels, a medium weight weave that is ideal for all seasons! Possum merino is a very low allergy yarn to wear.
Width – 59cm
Length – 220cm plus long fine 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.
