75% cotton, 25% linen
This is the first release of our new design Festival. Festival is primarily made up from a traditional spiralling diamond weave design that we both fell in love with (and already use to make up part of our teaching wrap design). This pattern gives a wonderful waffle like texture and stretch to the wrap, giving it a mouldable and marshmallowy softness that really is a joy to wrap with. This wrap is woven on our creamy white cotton Cirrus warp. Perran (named for one of my favourite childhood beaches near to where I grew up in Cornwall) , is the crisp blue of a summer sky or tropical sea. The weft consisting of 4 alternating threads of 2 cottons and 2 linens, making this wrap around 25% linen. This is a thin and airy medium weight (around 240 gsm) wrap, that is light and breathable yet cushy on the shoulders. It will be soft after its first wash but will improve with wear as the linen threads begin to break in.
Care and Labelling:
Your wrap has a care label sewn into one taper that lists the fibre content and washing care instructions. It also has a white label with a unique batch number written on it
The first thing you should do with your wrap is wash it. This not only cleans your wrap of any dust it has collected during weaving, it also allows the fibres to open up and the weave to tighten together, preventing pulls and thread shifting later down the line, so it is important to do. Cloth is woven under tension, and a careful wash will allow this tension to dissipate and the yarns to settle into their natural place within the weave.
HOW TO WASH NON-WOOL WRAPS (any wrap that doesn't have a wool content)
- We recommend that most of our wraps are washed at 30°C, with a slow spin, using a liquid detergent.
- For its first wash we recommend that you add other items to the wash load to pad it out a bit or wash in a pillow case to minimise twisting and the possibility of the threads shifting before they have become locked into their natural positions
- Wraps may be tumble dried on a low or gentle setting.
- A detergent that does not contain optical brighteners will help keep the colours from fading.
- Do not use a fabric softener as this will weaken the threads over time.
- Do not use a powder detergent, especially if you have a linen blend wrap as this will damage the threads.
- Wraps may be steam ironed.
About our Cloth
There may be slight variances in the thickness of natural fibres, little ‘nubs’ slubs or inclusions. These are just like birthmarks, and we sometimes use a purposefully slubby yarn for added texture in the cloth. You may notice a small joining knot where the end of one thread cone has been fastened to the start of the next. Some yarns may initially shed some loose fibres during the ‘breaking in’ process but these will disappear in time. Our loose and open weave shows the yarns in more of their natural state, rather than their appearance/texture being disguised by lots of tight crossovers between warp and weft.
