This is a deposit on a handwoven semi-custom piece. Please read the product description carefully before making the purchase.
Turiya is made of 100% eri silk from a community project in Maghalaya. This brand-new yarn is a perfect combination of the softness of cashmere and the strength of silk. It is naturally dyed with lac, indigo, walnut husks, and buckthorn bark. The colours are pooling in length-wise repetitions along the warp, from shades of dark sienna and dusky rose to hues of olive with hints of sage and moss (first photo).
The finished fabric is perfect for baby wraps, blankets, shawls, cowls, ponchos, and more. Weaving begins in the second week of October. The crackle variations - used on a different baby wrap - are shown in the last 3 pictures.
Once you reserved a spot on Turiya, we'll discuss weft fibre options and colours. I'll email you, or you can send me a message through my Facebook page.
PRICE per meter of handwoven fabric (includes hand-dying and your weft of choice): 2.100 SEK

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
