Handspun Organic Cotton Throw in Natural White
//The newest mini batch of 3 throws came out extra large! It's even big enough to use as a bed throw, covering the entire width of a queen size bed.//
This luscious throw uses 100% local organic cotton, and the handspun threads make for an extra cozy and luxurious wrap-around. Use it as a blanket on your couch, bed, or outside on those chilly summer nights.
Three panels handwoven on a backstrap loom have been combined using hand-stitched "randa" with natural indigo-dyed cotton. All of the fibers used for this piece have been grown, harvested, processed, spun, dyed, woven .... all by hand and by one family at Lake Atitlán. You can still smell the natural indigo in the fibers - so calming. The warp is undyed natural white cotton, and the weft organic cotton has been dyed in natural indigo.
Our friends over in San Juan la Laguna fertilize their cotton trees with a local ant poop - yup, poop. When the ants clean out their homes, so to say, the droppings can be harvested, and left by the cotton trees.
This newest XL batch throw measures 50 inches by 93 inches, plus fringes. Please allow a couple of inches of variety as each piece is handmade.
