Out of the Blue cushion
Out of the Blue are handwoven wool cushion covers. They are 50cm square, are entirely handwoven and each corner has a hand made tassel. There are 3 of them available.
These all wool handwoven cushion covers are denim blue with white inlaid stripes.
The yarn has neutral flecks through out and I’ve alternated plain weave with subtle pattern stripes which give the effect of a pattern in relief. Each corner is protected with handmade tassels in true Scandi style.
The plain blue wool fabric on the back of the cushions is also handwoven on my 8 shaft loom because I couldn’t find the right amount of the right fabric to finish them without buying new.
I love the idea that although there are 3 of them each one is still unique. The covers close with a sturdy zip down one side.
I recommend a gentle hand wash in warm water and dry outside
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.
