Woven in Scotland, where fine wool products have been made for centuries, Wool Striae (2013) comprises heathered spun yarns of variable thickness in a plain weave, steam-treated by perforated rollers that relax the fabric and draw the yarns closer, resulting in dense, smooth construction. Itâ€™s characterized by a subtle rectilinear pattern with flecks of color that add organic richness to the whole. Fabric made in the U.K. Saffron Decorative Pillows: Maharam Pillow in Wool Striae.
