Softly Wrap #2
Shorter than some of my other wraps, this weave is very easy to wear, across the shoulders or bunched up as a scarf, wrap around the baby or across your knees!
are silky soft fine possum merino with highlights of merino dyed with indigo. The warp is made in merinos and mohair, locally grown and produced, some of them hand dyed in soft grey.
Weaving designs of birds eye (pātikitiki in Maori design), twill and plain weave.
Silky soft and warm wool feels. Possum merino yarn is very low allergy and easy to wear close to the skin.

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...
