This is a cocooning wool felt shroud, similar to the Leafcocoon coffin but there is an element of DIY assembly required. There are 3 wooden cross pieces sewn into the base which give stability, and sleeves to take two long-wise wooden planks, which you provide. A wood merchant can cut to the required measurements, and detailed instructions are included. There are 6 strong handles, and three sets of straps. There is no padding or proofing in the base, which differentiates it from the Leafcocoon.
This, simpler, Shroudcocoon can be posted abroad and can also be rolled up and stored in a vacuum bag or similar, for the long term (as can the simple shroud). An optional wool cover, with or without decoration, can also be added – please contact Yuli for details, or if you need overseas posting.
As with all Bellacouche products, it’s plastic and metal free, 100% natural for minimal carbon footprint and fully biodegradable. My wool is sourced from organic farms that I visit. Further information about wool as a sustainable fibre here: Grazing animals and industrial livestock.
