Doing it justice

It's always such a delight to be receiving a parcel of hand printed beautiful fabric from the girls at Ink & Spindle.
I'd been contemplating this one for a while.
And when it arrived, all my preconceived plans for it went out the window.
It's perhaps the touch and feel. This is a blend of hemp and yak fibre. Yes, yak.
And the feel of it is amazing. It's soft, yet robust. Like a beautiful woven wool, but softer.
A lovely mid-weight.
So, I've tried to do justice to this lovely fabric.
I've done a little subtle hand stitching with some red silk, and made a scarf.
There might be a few more....
