February’s custom was for a 500cm baby wrap. It was important to create natural but vibrant colours for Sian’s fabric. She also requested a textile that would be soft on the shoulders when carrying her small person! As with the other custom made baby wraps the width was 30 inches wide giving a baby wrap of approximately 70cm in width.
Some inspiration for February’s Custom
The inspiration came from local British landscapes
Sian choose a Cotton & Hemp yarn dyed by hand painting the measured chains (see warp dyeing techniques) for the warp. Cotton & Hemp is strong and soft. The weft yarn – Merino & Bamboo provided give and extra softness on the shoulder. It was hand dyed in subtle variations of golden to dark brown.
