This Seven Sails teneriffe wreath is an abstract wall hanging woven with waxed Brazilian Linhasita thread in a single color on spokes attached to an 8-inch brass ring with the double buttonhole stitch. Longleaf pine needles (Pinus palustris) surround the ring with several coiled rows of diamond, radiating ti, and lazy stitches for a pattern that complements the primary focus of Seven Sails. A loop is attached at the top center for easy hanging. It usually takes about 24 hours to make a pine needle teneriffe wreath this size.

Care & Specs

Coiled pine needle creations are gifts from nature coiled with bundles of pine needles harvested after they’ve naturally fallen to the ground, and hand stitched with various waxed cords or threads. Many pine needle creations take more than forty hours to craft—truly labors of love that I hope may be enjoyed by others for many years to come. ~NMc

  • Care Recommendations
    Avoid fully immersing in water. Subsequent drying and contraction of water-soaked and swelled needles may loosen stitches.
  • Avoid direct sunlight: it could potentially damage organic materials or unevenly fade dyed elements used in your basket.
  • Gently remove dust with a soft paintbrush, or use a can of compressed air. Lightly wipe baskets with a damp cloth using cold water (without fully immersing in water).
  • Do not place in a microwave oven: metal parts may have been used in construction, and threads are coated with wax—it’s non-toxic, yet, could melt when exposed to heat.
  • Baskets are food safe, but to ensure ease of cleaning and their longevity, it is advisable to keep food separated from basket interiors with a cloth napkin or similar protection.
