Handwoven Hemp & Black Alpaca Throw with Rust Orange Finnsheep Wool
Handwoven Black & Alpaca Throw with Rust Orange Finnsheep Wool by London-based weaver Catarina Riccabona, is crafted on a traditional loom from plant-dyed Finnsheep wool, undyed hemp and alpaca. The throw can be used at the end of a bed or beautifully draped on a sofa.
This piece is one of three from the Hemp & Black Alpaca series. Catarina’s starting point was the desire to use completely undyed materials such as the natural fine hemp in the warp and the natural fleece-colour black of the alpaca yarn. The rusty orange section is made from a mushroom-dyed Finnsheep wool. Catarina’s designs often form spontaneously while she is weaving and each of her throws are highly individual, characterised by slight irregularities that are typical of handmade pieces.
