It is open to conversion opportunities, as well as the opportunity to add fringe.
It is ridiculously soft and flowy. I wouldn't recommend using this as a wrap (although it is made to wrap standards) because it is on the thinner side. It would make a gorgeous shawl, or could be chopped into 2 single loop cowls. It could also be sewn into an infinity loop!
Fibre details are as follows:
Warp: Tussah Silk (thin)
Weft: Bourette Silk
1 side currently has loose fringe, and could easily be twisted, or hemmed to remove the fringe. The other side is currently hemmed, and could be fringed (the length of fringe would be deducted from the current woven length of 1.9m)
Wash instructions - Machine wash separately in cool water, and lay flat to dry. A quick tumble dry on low is okay, and a good iron on the wool setting will keep this piece soft and flowy.
