Blanket or large wrap! This beautiful piece is woven in undyed awapara and merino in lovely soft greys with merino hand dyed with onion skins in a stunning soft yellow. I have hand dyed the merino in my studio and the shades are unique to this piece. The warp is a black mohair and merino mix, the weaving design triple birds eye, a diamond pattern representing seeing a wider view.
Very soft wool feels with a lovely heavier blanket drape.
Width – 92cm
Length – 199cm plus knotted 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.
