This wrap is subtle in design, the soft natural colours coming from leaves gathered in and around our property. It is soft and lightweight, being woven from alpaca and merino, in the natural colours of the Australian bush. The ends are hand stitched, a process done on the loom alongside the weaving. This wrap will add a touch of unique style to your winter wardrobe, and can decorate your home during the summer months, draped over beds and chairs.
It is handwoven by Fiona. From design concept to finished product, each piece is created with attention to detail, always allowing the design to change and grow with the weaving. The yarn comes from our own herd of alpacas, the dye comes from the leaves of the gums growing in the reserve below our property.
Suri is the softest of alpaca fibres. It is lighter than wool and will drape elegantly around the body – it’s warmer than wool too, so even though this wrap is light, you will feel extra cosy on those cool days and chilly nights.
Alpaca fibre is resilient will keep its shape and softness for years.
Should you need to wash it, do so by hand only, squeezing out excess water by folding it in a towel and pressing down. Do not wring. Dry laid out flat. Not to be tumble dried. Iron with a cool iron, protecting it with a cotton or linen tea towel.
