Winter White is a handwoven heavy wool shawl. Its just like having a huge, luxurious hug. It is wonderfully soft and cosy with a touch of shimmer and shine from the banana silk stripes. If that isn’t enough, it’s large enough to drape over a kingsize bed to keep your feet warm when you aren’t wearing it
Winter White measures 216 cm x 65 cm plus twisted fringes
Woven in my 4 shaft Ashford table loom, the weave pattern is simple huck lace stripes which add to wonderful drape and make this shawl so comfortable to wear or snuggle up under.
I recommend a gentle hand wash in warm water and to dry outside if at all 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.
