Free Shipping! It's On Us!

Prayer in Action

We can give meaning to our time at home by weaving a prayer shawl to comfort ourselves or to gift to someone we love. Designer, Sarah Jackson has woven symbols of her faith into this shadow weave fabric. And so can you!

Prayer Shawl
It's easy to weave this shadow weave shawl on any 4-shaft, 20" wide loom using a 10 dent reed and our luxurious Tencel 8/2. Weave it in blues as shown.

Weaving A Tradition
From the Jewish tallit to the Muslim keffiyeh to the meditation shawls found in Hinduism and Buddhism, the tradition of prayer shawls goes back millennia and spans faiths around the world.

Of All Faiths
In the Christian church, prayer shawls find their roots in the tallit (the plural is tallitot). While the maker of a Jewish tallit must follow very specific rules as to shape, fiber, and finishing, Christian prayer shawls have no hard or fast rules.

Reminder of Love & Hope
Although dissimilar in their creation, these shawls are both physical reminders of love and hope--the cloth envelops a person much like a hug, providing comfort and warmth, both physical and spiritual. Some weavers find it meaningful to weave their prayers into the shawl with each pass of the shuttle.

Meaning Woven In
Sarah Jackson' prayer shawl incorporates many elements that are meaningful to her. She chose shadow weave for the structure, as the name itself reminds her of the darkness that sometimes seems to block out the light in our lives. She found shapes and patterns that seemed illustrative of her faith.

More Symbols Involved
Sarah goes on to explain even more symbols that are woven into this prayer shawl.
You can read the article about Sarah’s shawl on the Long Thread Media website.
