Striped Sailboat Needlepoint Pillow
Beautiful handmade wool needlepoint pillow using both standard stitch and petipoint stitch for the sailsand the rigging of this sloop- giving the feel of the wind in its sails.
A sloop (from Dutch sloep, in turn from French chaloupe) is a sailing boat with a single mast and a fore-and-aft rig. This sloop has the added feature of a spinnaker sail as it sailing "down wind" and is on "a reach". A spinnaker is a special type of sail that is designed specifically for sailing off the wind from a reaching course to downwind, i.e. with the wind 90 degrees - 180 degrees off bow. The spinnaker fills the wind and balloons out in front of the boat when it is deployed, called flying.
All pillows come with a poly insert. Down Stuffers are available as a luxurious alternative.
