Baby Wrap "Intertidal" - trådverk

Baby Wrap "Intertidal"

This wrap is silky and soft, light and yet strong enough to carry a heavy toddler. It has a bit more grip than glide, and wraps almost like a second skin.

The warp is 100% eri silk from a community project in Maghalaya, and a perfect combination of the softness of cashmere and the strength of silk. The weft is made of various silks: a muga & tussah blend in natural golden champagne, as well as eri silk, reeled mulberry silk, and tussah silk dyed in various shades of copper, gold, rose gold, and bronze.

Inlays are made of handspun superfine merino wool. Tail extras include narrow strips of softest kid mohair.

All yarn was hand-dyed using the natural dyestuffs walnut husks, indigo, madder root, lac, and buckthorn bark.

Length: 3.9m plus twisted fringes.

All handwovens are washed with organic soap before shipping. They arrive ready to wear.

100% handmade

All pieces were handmade from start to finish: The yarn was dyed with natural dyes one skein at a time, then washed, dried, and wound onto bobbins. From there, hundreds of threads were wound onto my loom, and threaded through hundreds of heddles and reed dents. The fabric was handwoven one thread at a time, then cut off the loom and washed with handmade organic soap, before it was dried, labelled, and pressed.

AFTER CARE SERVICE

My handwovens are made to last a lifetime. But sometimes life can be rough, and a thread gets pulled and breaks, or your dog attempts to eat the fringe. Therefore, I offer a free repairs service for my handwovens for a year after purchase.

washing instructions

You can use the wool wash program of your washing machine, or gently wash by hand in lukewarm water using detergent or soap for wool and silk. Gently squeeze the suds through the fabric, taking care not to rub the fabric too much, and avoid steep changes in water temperature as this may cause shrinkage. Rinse the garment in clean water, squeezing gently without twisting or wringing. A short light spin in the washing machine will help remove most of the water. Dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators and sunlight. Never use a tumble dryer! Press whilst damp, or with steam at medium setting to bring out the softness and lustre of silk.
