Trusty Jeans. Handwoven large fine slub linen shawl.

The base colour is a denim blue. Overlaid on the base is a grid in olive green. This grid is at first mirrored, then grows into stripes of varying widths. All of these different elements give the cloth movement and versatility.

This is woven from an extraordinarily supple 40/2 linen, perfect for elegant scarves. The thread is fine (= sewing thread) and the end result is a beautiful sheer scarf or gauze like wrap.

The shawl drapes well, and is soft and supple. This will look lovely wrapped a couple times around your neck, and as an accent piece. This can also be worn as a beach cover-up, like a sarong.

The shawl has been machine washed in a lingerie bag and line dried, then hot pressed.

Materials: Pure slub, 40/2 wet spun line linen. 2″ eyelash fringe. Hand wash, or machine wash in lingerie bag. Hot iron.

This one-off piece is Work 194. I never weave the same cloth or item twice. Every piece is unique and numbered, every creation has a story to tell.

One of the finest yarns available, 40/2 linen is the best choice for handwovens that need the drape and suppleness that ultra-fine threads provide. 40/2 linen has strength and smoothness and will soften even more with use. Linen is derived from the flax crop, a plant that is extremely versatile in use. As a fabric, linen is chosen for its durability and its ability to keep us cool or warm, depending on which we need, though it is a little more expensive because the flax plant requires a lot of tending to. Also, although it creases easily and is not stretchy, it will last its buyer a very long time. It’s also completely biodegradable, which makes it one of the most eco-friendly materials we have at our disposal.

Dimensions: width 27″ – 68cm // length w/o fringe 78″ – 198cm // fringe 2″ – 5cm.

Entirely hand woven and hand finished. Made by me in a smoke-free home.
