Anyone else excited for the first fall woolie release? This release promises evenings with a cool nip in the air, bright red and orange leaves and evening bonfires.
You might recognize this wrap. It is was released in Winter 2012 under the name Lace Charm and was woven in indigo and ecru threads.
This is a jacquard weave woven in wine red (more brownish than red) and ecru threads.
30% merino wool
Weight: 240 gm/m2
Release Date: 11 September 2013
This is a great weight for merino wool. A touch on the thick side, but not overly thick. It should break in to be wonderfuly soft and marshmallowy.
Woolie wraps require a bit more care than linen or cotton. The primary concern with wool is to avoid felting it, which can weaken the fabric and potentially make it unsafe for use. To avoid this, gently hand wash your wool wraps with a wool wash without lanolin. To remove excess water after washing, lay the wrap flat in a large towel and then roll the towel up to soak up excess water. Air dry your woolie, but make sure to give it support while it is drying (I spread our woolies out over our drying racks or hang dry hanging the wrap over hangers at regular intervals)
