We supply small quantites of Steamed willow rods for weaving, these come in packs of 60 rods and each rod is between 3‘6"‘ and 4‘6" long. Steamed willow is a natural dried willow that has been boiled for a few hours to deepen its colour. This process releases the tannins in the willow stems which stain the willow bark a lovely dark chocolate colour and softens the texture. It is important that you soak your willow before use, steamed willow requires less soaking time than many willow rods with the bark on. The recommendation is around half a day of soaking per foot of length which means that a 4‘ rod will need around 2 days in cold water. This can be done in a bath or water trough, alternatively we sell 6 foot plastic soaking bag & peg sets to help (it saves getting the bath sticky!)

All available couriers are now charging extra for long length parcels. It is the same for 1 item as for 10 so make sure that you order all that you need in one go to save postage!
