All Marshmallow products are crocheted using 100% hand-dyed cotton or Bamboo fibre. The hand-dyed cotton gives the garment a unique marbelled effect.
Bamboo is a renewable fibre source, naturally antibacterial and non-allergenic. Products are best hand-washed and laid flat to dry.
Beginning in the 1800s in Britain, America and France, crochet began to be used as a less costly substitute for other forms of lace. The price of manufactured cotton thread was dropping, and even though crocheted laces took up more thread than woven bobbin laces, the crocheted laces were faster to make and easier to teach.
