Fringe Wool Pillow, 22 x 22
Please join the wait list for this variant.
This simple and subtle pillow featuring a basketweave pattern with a hand pulled fringed edge is handcrafted exclusively for Bloomist using wool from Chilota sheep that are born and raised on Chiloe Island off the west coast of Chile. As a result of harsh weather on the remote island wool from these sheep is soft and highly desirable. A versatile style that works well on its own and plays well with others.
The wool is first cleaned in hot water to remove the natural oils, then dried and spun into fine thread. Yarn is dyed using natural materials like leaves, barks, roots, branches, clay, moss, and minerals before being hand-woven on ancient looms by Chiloe craftswomen. These artisans use techniques and processes that have been handed down from generation to generation with families specializing in distinct ways to weave and spin the wool.
Bloomist exclusive. Available in Ivory, Light Grey and Dark Grey.
Pillow includes premium feather and down insert.
