This statement fabric knot necklace is made of four strands, finished by nickel free clasp. This handmade piece of jewellery is made of t-shirt yarn scraps, collected in Italian textile factories. It is stretchy microfiber carefully hand knotted and hand sewn.
I suggest you to soak the jewel in warm water and very little liquid detergent (for synthetic textiles) for about 15/30 minutes. Rinse gently, squeeze just a little with your hands and leave it to dry on a drying rack not in the sun directly. Don’t forget to put underneath a bowl for dripping.
I recommend keeping fabric jewels in a drawer, in a bag, or in a dry place without direct sunlight. Keep away from small children because they can be dangerous (like any jewelry). Like all fabrics, if exposed outdoors in the long term they become dusty, discolored and odorous.
We use scraps of cotton, jersey, stretch cotton, microfiber, acrylic fabric sold in large yarns, originated from EU countries. In particular, I purchase from a company that personally collects threads from textile factories in Northern Italy, for which it has the one-off availability of a color or pattern.
Since my shop is not a full time job, I cannot afford to rent a space for working-only purposes. So I work from home. I don’t have pets and don’t smoke. When I finish my duties, I store all yarns and jewelry in a dedicated wardrobe and drawers. Like clothes, yarns are damaged if exposed to light and open air. I don’t like wasting, so I keep everything with particular care.
