This wrap is woven on a warp of warm linen, making it a thick and luxurious wrap for the colder weather, or if not being worn an exquisite runner for your bed.
The fibres are all hand blended, hand spun and hand woven in the UK, using ethical wool from textured Shetland Locks, Welsh Alpaca, French angora, Blue Faced Leicester and Wensleydale wools on a warp of textured soft linen.
Bright Moon Yarn is ethical and traceable, using the wonderful natural resource of South Down Wool and Romney Marsh Fleece from Sheep Ahoy Animal Rescue in Kent, UK. Once sheared, the fleece is then processed in Cornwall by The Natural Fibre Company. This beautiful local fleece creates the base for all blended skeins used in Imogen's textiles, and additional fibre blends such as wild silk and linen are sourced to meet the highest standards of environmentalism, animal welfare and sustainability.
Imogen Di Sapia is a British weaver and exhibiting artist-maker in textiles, working with hand-weaving combined with storytelling, folklore and heritage crafts to create her studio textiles.
