A luxury lightweight airy shawl woven with beautifully soft merino yarn making it a shawl with warmth and drape. This shawl has been woven using a deflected doubleweave design which creates a fabric with a striking zig zag reversible pattern. This shawl would be a perfect luxury gift for that someone special who would appreciate a unique one of a kind artisan made accessory.
The fabric for this shawl was woven on a Louet floor loom using light grey and white fine merino lambswool yarns. An eight shaft deflected doubleweave design was used. Once the fabric was woven it was removed from the loom and washed to remove the spinning oils which helps to stabilise the fragile yarn when weaving. Removal of the spinning oils causes the fabric to full and soften creating a beautifully soft shawl.
Length is 1.8m with a 15cm twisted fringe. Width is 38cm.
Wash by hand in cool water with minimal agitation. Do not tumble dry. Dry naturally and press.
