One of my latest and favourite weaves! This extra long wrap is woven in possum and merino yarns hand dyed at my studio. Rich fuchsia and mustard with soft grey which is dyed with pomegranate. Birds eye and tabby weaving designs. This piece is glorious to wear and also long enough to drape on your couch or bed to enliven your home.
Beautifully soft and warm! Possum merino yarns are very low allergy against the skin and this piece feels extra cosy.
Width – 52cm
Length – 250cm plus 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.
