The Wedding Bouquet, wrap #2

Gentle and subtle, yet beautiful and strong, with 270 GSM density.

The weft is the same silk as in the warp. Weft colours are gentle, with three shades of pale pink, and there is turquoise and sour apple green accents to add another layer of intricacy to the look. 64 more words

SeaSilk yarn, hand-dyed in pink, magenta, fuchsia, with the hints of yellow and turquoise, is the weft for this beauty. 79 more words
