This is a very special unique piece. For this wrap, I designed the main part to take advantage of a lovely mohair and merino 2ply yarn, that has a beautiful softness and drape. I hand dyed it with a colourway of bordeaux, purple, olive green and old gold which emphasized the richness and sheen of this yarn.
To give the mohair wrap some texture I incorporated four other yarns, a heavy, luxurious silk boucle that I dyed an old gold, a slub cotton thread in purples and deep pinks and a merino boucle yarn dyed a rich deep red. The final yarn is a wool lycra blend also dyed a deep red. This yarn when washed, shrinks considerably and creates a ripple effect throughout the whole piece. The wrap was woven with a 2ply merino wool dyed a deep purple. I then added fine brass beads all around the edges.
This wrap was truly a labour of love and was one of only two New Zealand entries accepted for the Fibre Design Book 7 published in America.
