Bundle of Salix Viminalis ‘Bowles’ Hybrid willow whips – mixed lengths 2’6″ to 3’6″/ 75 cm to 105 cm.**
This willow is intended to be used for ‘rough’ 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.
If using for making rabbit toys, we would suggest that the willow is rinsed in fresh water before use.
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 EVRi (formerly Hermes) rather than more expensively with a specialist carrier.
Ref WK 106C £16.00
