Treasure Binding hand pulled rovings - 100g

Only 4 left in stock



Another colourway put together for the Ancient Manuscripts themed box. Many medieval manuscripts had treasure bindings - especially Biblical tomes had bindings covered in precious metals, precious and semi precious stones, iviry and velvet. This is one of the reasons that many ancient books were stolen - so that their bingings could be removed. I found on the British Library site, the inspiration photograph of a Gospel book, produced in the 10th Century in Metz – possibly gifted to the Cathedral of St Stephen by Bishop Thierry. The central panel is an ivory insert produced in the 9th Century. What I loved most about it was the soft velvet surrounding it, embellished with silver and gold. So, this is what I focussed on for this blend.

The hand pulled rovings are a lucious, luxury blend of superfine (18.5 micron) merino in shades of teal and grey, with added gold using Muga silk and silver mulberry silk.

The superfine merino fibres will felt.
