Hi, I'm Bekki. Welcome to my shop
My Wildflower textile art purse was nominated for the National Needlecraft Award 2019 for 'best use of embroidery in fashion and accessories'. Check out my new textile art purse collection here.
A unisex handwoven cowl in blues made from cloth woven on my rigid heddle loom with a hand embroidered focal of a bunch of lovely toadstools. The yarn used is a mix of fibres; in the warp is alpaca, merino wool and nylon set into stripes of varying widths in grey, beige, coral and black. The weft is made up of a merino wool and yak blend yarn hand dyed by a folksy artist in a series of blues with patches of undyed natural yak coming through. The overall effect is a soft blue that undulates in intensity. It reminds me of the ocean, blues with other colours subtly reflected in it. Maybe you see something else? Yak is up to 40% warmer than sheep wool and alpaca is warmer too so this cowl is super warm and cosy, perfect for the cooler months. The cowl has a soft handle and drape so is easy to wear and adjust to be worn however you like it.
The hand embroidered focal point of the cowl has been stitched with red and white toadstool mushrooms scattered on a charcoal essex linen which was then wrapped around the cowl and sewn in place.
I've designed this to be a unisex piece that would suit anyone's wardrobe and personal style. With hand embroidered art, hand dyed yarn and hand woven cloth this is truly an artisanal one of a kind piece. Great for giving to a special someone or a cosy treat for yourself.
Hand wash and do not tumble dry.
