This shawl has been woven on a Louet floor loom using a deflected doubleweave design with various purple, pink, lilac and blue merino lambswool shades of yarn. This design uses 8 shafts with areas of longer warp and weft floats. The yarn is supplied in spinning oils to give additional strength to the fine fragile yarn and during washing these oils are removed with some differential shrinkage depending on the length of the floats which causes the fabric to full and deflect serving to soften the edges of the design.
Dimensions: 72cm wide and 225cm long with a 1cm frayed fringe at each end.
Care: Handwash gently in warm water, dry naturally and press.
