Silk & Cashmere Baby Wrap "Turiya" - trådverk

Silk & Cashmere Baby Wrap "Turiya"

This baby wrap is kitten belly soft, medium in hand, and strong enough to carry a heavy toddler. It's lovely on sore shoulders. It has a little more grip than glide glide.

The warp is made of 100% Meghalayan eri silk from a community project. The weft is Mongolian cashmere from a community project (turquoise blocks) and mulberry silk from GOTS-certified organic production (gold blocks).

Length: 3.26m plus twisted fringe
Width: 0.73m

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.
