One day I was checking out the posts on Loom to Wrap and I saw a pic that made me stop dead in my tracks. It was Handwoven Treasures’ OOAK Aspiration. I had never seen anything like it before. The world of handwovens is inundated with plain weave and twills. It’s very rare when a double weave comes along. This particular design is a 24 shaft double twill structure from the book Weaving with Echo and Iris by Marian Stubenitsky.
As soon as I saw it I was liking and commenting on every picture I could. I immediately contacted the weaver regarding a custom but she is booked solid. Then one day a miracle happened. As I was eating dinner I looked down on my phone (I know, shame on me) and Aspirations was posted FS! I immediately contacted the seller stating I was interested. The stars must have aligned with me that evening and I was offered the opportunity to purchase my DISO! Let the reverse funding begin.
Not only did my DISO arrive, the sweet mama who sold her to me included a wrap scrap keychain embroidered with the babywearing logo, 2 towels also embroidered with the babywearing logo, a tactile middle marker and a hand written note. I am still blown away by everything. Not to mention, I audibly gasped for air when I saw just how vibrant the colors were. I can’t decide which side I love more. Plus, it is super cozy and fluffy like a marshmallow.
I cannot wait to do my review- but until then here’s some pics (with permission from HWT). I just love pics of wraps OTL/Geekery!
