This beautiful shawl is handwoven by Irene from Vienna on a wooden handloom machine. The head comb used for the shawl measures 40/10, 40 threads every 10 centimeters. The shawl is made of high-quality materials, combining 50% yak and 50% silk. The yarns are dyed manually using plant-based colors. It is the combination of these three elements - yak, silk, and natural color - which makes the shawl glow in its own light. It is a real revelation as the shawl shows different shades depending on the light and the perspective.
The colors of the yarns used for the shawl come from the following plants respectively: ochre - Tagetes, blue-black Mauve, organic - undyed yarn. The shawl is 53 cm wide, 1.80 m long and has 14 cm of bangs. It has 264 warp threads which I divided into 60 in blue, 60 in ochre, 30 in nature-blue, 60 in nature, 30 in ochre and 24 in nature-blue. For threading the first 12 threads I have inserted the double on each side - in this case 24 threads. This gives the shawl a more resolute and elegant structure.
