This is a deposit on a handwoven semi-custom piece. Please read the product description carefully before making the purchase.
Abalone is made of 100% spun mulberry silk from GOTS certified organic Ahimsa production. It was painted with indigo, cochineal, rhubarb root, and lac, which create a soft gradient of colours along the warp.
The finished fabric is perfect for baby wraps, blankets, shawls, cowls, ponchos, and more. Weaving patterns are the twill variations used for Intertidal. In the gallery you can also find the Abalone full-custom with a natty, light and medium pink, and light magenta cashmere/silk weft.
Once you reserved a spot on Abalone, we'll discuss weft fibre options and colours. I'll email you, or you can send me a message through my Facebook page.

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.More Information
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.Buy Washing Soap
