Hourglass is a one of a kind all wool handwoven cushion. It is a dark charcoal grey with electric blue inlays in a bold geometric shape. It is certainly a statement piece of art for you home.
Hourglass measures 50 cm x 50 cm and was woven in one piece and then folded and stitched to create a cushion cover with an envelope style opening at the back. It has been finished with electric blue handmade tassels to protect the corners
It is all wool and comes with a cotton filled cushion pad. I found the yarn in the local scrap store so it has great eco credentials too.
I recommend a gentle hand wash in warm water and dry outside if possible.
About Five Turrets Handwoven
I live in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders and started weaving in 2015 when I got my first four shaft Ashford table loom. I love all things fibre but I’m truly hooked on weaving. I'm lucky enough to have my own home weaving studio to house my ever growing collection of looms.
I hope you like what you see in my shop. I make handwoven scarves, blankets and homeware. My craft is all about waste reduction and sustainability. Weaving is essentially interlocking warp and weft and my passion is to do that by combining unloved and surplus materials into one of a kind beautiful and useful cloth creations. Most of the yarns I use are Scrap Store or charity shop finds, mill ends and surplus stock. If I buy new, the emphasis is always on ethical production and from local spinners and dyers.
