Sea Shell Echoes - 'Astar' Baby Wrap Size 4
The 'Astar' Baby Wrap is one of two sister pieces from a custom made baby wrap warp: a Cotton warp with a focus on beautiful and subtle blues. Framed by purple and soft teal like blues the shades are classic and beautiful. This piece of fabric will make you want to touch and bring close to your heart. it doesn't shout but the echoes are unmistakable.
'Astar' Baby Wrap is woven in a crackle weave with the treadling circling back to give diamond shapes in the pattern. The weft fibres are a stunning Royal Alpaca and Mulberry Silk yarn that is described as being 'lighter than clouds' and having a 'delicate sheen' and 'gentle drape'. Hand dyed by Feather & Hay the 'Astar' Baby Wrap's weft is a soft fawn that gives the wrap a Royal quality to accompany the Royal grade of the Alpaca.
Why is it called 'Astar'? The warp name came from the sea shell collection inspiration photo. The imagery around this warp is about wide open beaches with sporadic shells dotting the expanse. Astar is the Scottish Gaelic word for 'journey' or 'distance' - 'Astar' Baby Wrap represents the journey a small shell may take across a fierce sea to arrive singularly on a shore.
The 'Astar' Baby Wrap is a mid range density comparable to other F&H baby wraps. It has amazing drape but is light in hand and will be soft from the very beginning. 'Astar' is beautifully finished with tassels.
