Bundle of Salix Purpurea Lambertiana willow whips – mixed lengths 2’6″ to 3’6″/ 75 cm to 105 cm.**
This is a ‘finer’ more traditional weaving willow variety (than Salix Viminalis ‘Bowles Hybrid’) willow. This willow is intended to be used for weaving not as living willow for rooting.
Please note that this willow will dry out and, if it is to be used for weaving from around late April onwards, it will need soaking before it is pliable again. Full instructions will be provided, but please also see our pages on ‘dead’ willow weaving for more information.
(A thick polythene soaking bag is included at no extra charge – see photograph).
Each bundle will contain approximately 100 whips.
Please note that we are providing willow only, not weaving instructions – the additional photographs are included only as examples of possible projects that this willow can be used for – you can see more ideas here.
**We have limited the maximum length of these bundles so that they can be sent with Hermes rather than more expensively with a specialist carrier.
Longer lengths of this variety may be available – please get in touch to check on availability .
