Cobalt 100% cotton

Our third round of samples arrived this week and we are both elated!  

These wraps are on a lighter-weight warp than Garden Nuptial and therefore are a bit less cumbersome to wrap with. The density is quite high though, making this 100% cotton wrap extremely supportive. 

The Cobalt colourway we are calling Co 27 for the atomic element, it is the silvery blue of long winter shadows on snow.  Cobalt blue was always one of six colours I had in my limited palette when I was studying painting, it has such purity and mixes very clean. Old Holland Cobalt Blue is packed with pigment, the tube is weighty in hand, like a stone from the seashore.

This is Co 27 after a hot wash and dry, we like to imagine worst case scenarios with our samples.
