I just love plain, old looking baskets. This one is based on the wool drying baskets used by our ancestors. After the sheep were sheared, the wool needed to be washed before it could be carded and spun. The wool was placed in a basket with feet to elevate it off the floor and holes in the weaving that allowed the water to drain out.

For this reproduction I chose to use a center handle rather than end handles - just to mix things up a little bit! The weave is simple - same size spokes and weavers, as our ancestors would have done. The approximate measurements are: 16 1/2" long, 7" wide and 13" tall including the feet and handle.

The finish on this basket is 100% natural black walnut stain, created by me on my kitchen stove with black walnuts and water. No chemicals are used in the creation of this stain. Excess dye is removed so there is no pooling of color.

Depending on your zip code I may have to ship this basket via USPS Parcel Post. Those of you close to me in Ohio will receive it via USPS Priority Mail. I will refund any shipping charges over $1.00 that I am off in calculations. I will also send you a shipping notice so you will have the tracking number and the method of delivery.
