50 years of cloth Pieced Poncho Take 3
This garment is sewn from many little irregularly shaped pieces of cloth, handwoven by me over the past 50 years. This was a popular colour combination, every warp was composed of different yarns in the warp and weft, so there is a lot of gradation of colour, in what I call a blue/green/purple mix. I wove both fine density and heavy cloth. This is a piece of heavy weight cloth, densley woven in a generous size. It drapes beautifully’ It is a pullover design and a regular poncho shape, worn with either a triangle hem in the front or a rectangular shape. There is hand knotted fringe on 2 sides. The crazy quilt technique was very time consuming, and created something totally unique’ There is a great graduation of colour, intense, deep, very eye catching. This piece is a generous size, L or XL, and very comfortable to wear. Machine Washable using only soak and spin cycles and cold water. Dry flat.
