Embroidery on hemp/silk


This is the first time I've done a fairly detailed embroidery on this stunning fabric. It is a blend of raw silk and hemp. Unusual that's for sure, but so luxurious and soft. I used a 6 ply cotton yarn and the colours were inspired by the ocean during a trip to the south coast back in 2013. I have not yet decided what I will turn it into but stay tuned...
The fabric can be purchased from in Sydney.
