Now, here is a really useful accessory!
It can be carried in the hand or over the arm. It is so lightweight.
When travelling this Carry on Cushion can be sat on, used as a soft and giving head rest, as a back support or even something to cuddle. It is soft and silky with a filling of perfect density. Of course it can be used for all these situations at home too. Or as a visual statement on a comfy chair.
This cushion is created in a true patchwork style using left over bits. The triangular off-cuts that are joined to create squares come from the corners that are left over after I cut my handwoven fabric 'on the cross' to make Men's Woollen Ties.
The dark grey wool comes from a 'black' fleece which I have handspun and use as 'singles' which gives a softer weave. All the lighter coloured yarns are also handspun wool of natural colours. The other yarns used in the warp and weft are all wool that has been commercially dyed and spun.
The warp is the yarn that is put onto the loom and kept under tension for weaving. My warps are usually finer than my handspun wefts but its colours does add interest: e.g. I really like the fine blue spots that show, on close inspection, in the triangle with the blue stripe on it.
The woollen greens influenced the choice of green pure silk as the joining and surround pieces and also the handles. The cushion back is in a beautiful cinnamon coloured pure silk.
The cusion cover can be washed by hand and should be dried flat and lightly steam pressed.
The fabrics have all been washed prior to construction.
The cushion insert is both polyester fabric and filled. It is machine washable but do not tumble dry.
