Linen Double Weave Wrap
Linen Double Weave Wrap
9" x 84"

This unique wrap was handwoven in a "double weave" technique where two layers of single-ply linen were woven at once. The weft that binds the layers together is superfine overspun silk crepe yarn. This "overspun" silk crepe forces the linen to contract and ripple for the added interest of waves of texture. I hope you will be reaching for this simple yet complex piece of wearable art time and time again.
