Description
The wrap is in a grey and transparent yarn, handwoven using three different threads - wool, wool lycra and nylon. Woven in distinct horizontal bands in various tensions and densities, the work has an undulating surface. Along the outer edges, loops of clear nylon thread extrude forming an unusual decorative border. The wrap is semi-transparent and light reflects off the nylon threads and shines through the areas of loose tension, creating a soft shimmering effect.
