Shroudcocoon – DIY Bier with wool cocoon

£780.00

This is a cocooning wool felt shroud, similar to the Leafcocoon coffin but there is an element of DIY assembly.  3 wooden cross pieces have been sewn into the base to give stability, and 2 sleeves 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.

Environmental Footprint

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.

Spills on felt can usually be easily sponged off.  Wool has the wonderful ability to ‘wear clean’, in other words, it will hold a lot of dirt before it is noticeable, so frequent washing is unnecessary and environmentally undesirable.  Also, depending on the vigour with which you wash the felt, a certain amount of shrinkage will happen, which on the one hand strengthens it, and on the other, makes it smaller.  So care must be taken to be gentle.

Hand washing of felt can actually improve its quality and strengthen it.

Wash in hand hot water using any good bar or powder soap, rinse, squeeze in a towel, pull into shape and leave to dry.
