ione Organic Pima cotton v.3 weft 2.25 meters

263.25

ione has a tri-blend warp, combining mulberry silk kettle-dyed in blues, greens and purples with a cottolin (40% linen/60% cotton) warp in a smooth gradation of blue-green. It was threaded in a densely interlaced 12-shaft twill draft that features a simple pattern and a lot of cush.

The weft for this wrap is hand-dyed Organic Pima cotton. The weft has been dyed with a variegated technique in deep purples, blues and light blues. This was an early attempt at the technique and, while the colors are the same from one skein to another, the distribution of colors vary, making weft changes very noticeable. I hemmed the end woven with the most closely matches skeins, positioning the most noticeable change at the wearer's back. This is an airy, fluffy piece and should make a divine ring sling (or shawl)! I can hem the second rail upon request. It weighs approximately 285 grams/m^2. 

warp: 50% mulberry silk/20% linen/30% cotton

weft: Organic Pima cotton

weight: 285 grams/m^2

Recommended care

Special care should be taking in washing the wrap to preserve the color of the silk in the warp, which has been acid-dyed. This is a method of dyeing in which an acidic bath at high temperature is used to set the dye. In the process of dyeing, all effort was made to exhaust the dye bath and then to rinse the fiber with a textile detergent to remove any un-bonded dye molecules. In wet-finishing the wrap, it has been washed in a gentle detergent several times, each time rinsed until the water runs clear. Different types of acid dyes will have different levels of wash fastness. As such, your detergent - however gentle - can break the bonds between the fiber and the dye molecules. To avoid loss of color, make sure you wash the wrap in cold water with just a bit of detergent. My personal preference is to first moisten the wrap in cold water and then place it in a sink-mounted colander. Pour a small amount of cold, soapy water over the wrap, and rinse until all suds or color (if there is any) are no longer visible in the rinse water. Remove excess water by rolling it in a towel and applying gentle pressure. You may also wash the wrap in a tub, but take care not to soak it for long periods in soapy water or more color is likely to be removed. If you do notice a color to you bath water, simply pour out the water and rinse the wrap until the water runs clear.
