WRAP PORTFOLIO

Microcosm

WOVEN BY ALLISON

July 2016

This wrap was near and dear to me, as it was my first wrap warp ever.  I used a photo that my husband took of some mushrooms while hiking in the woods shortly after we were married. I knew the first time I saw the photo, I wanted to turn it into an earthy inspired wrap.

 

While originally only planned as a 5.2m longie, it ended up at 5.6m! I used a fluffy, soft 5/2 birch-colored bamboo weft on a warp of 8/2 pre-dyed cotton. It is still one of my favorite wraps to date and also features a signature weave that I created myself.

There is only one sister to the main Microcosm wrap, and it is a 2m piece with dark green cotton weft that will always be with me at home.
