Selkie Pelt Blanket Wrap
58cm x 164cm (plus fringe)
Hand blended and hand spun rare breed British wools; North Ronaldsay (Isle of Auskerry), Leicester Long Wool, with Tibetan Yak and wild harvested golden Muga silk.
On a warp of softest British alpaca.
This is a soft, heavy and warm piece; densely woven in a range of techniques I’ve developed to emphasise texture, warmth and comfort.
This piece is more substantial in handle due to the triple-plied yarn I’ve been working on (chain plied in the traditional Navajo / Diné way), and is perfect for a wrap, blanket or rug as you require.
It is structural, and can be folded in half lengthways and wrapped to form a cowl that will hold its shape, for the wearer to decide. Equally at home as a small blanket to keep you warm on the sofa, or a cosy rug whilst travelling.
Wet finished, so can be safely cold wet finished again in the future.
a special note for my international/European clients;
(Please email me direct at email@example.com for shipping queries outside the UK as it is currently taking 3-4 weeks to ship to Europe for example, and importantly, *you will be charged import customs* on newly purchased goods which can add a significant % to the final costs, this is due to Brexit, my apologies.)
