Prototype Merino Ring Sling
I receive various samples from my mill, and some are made into prototypes. Testing weaves, thickness, materials and blends, and ideas for designs... I continue to be impressed by wool. How it can be so thin, yet so supportive. This is one of only two prototype ring slings I made. It's 100% mulesing free merino in a fairly dense weave, but thin and silk-like in its softness. A dense weave is very well suited for ring slings and it carries so (so!) well, and adjusts so easily.
And it's striking in its tartan pattern. Perfect paired with a leather jacket. 😎🤘
This ring sling is 2 meters long, untapered tail and with silver rings. Just 2 exists.
