The purpose of this lap cloth is two-fold -- it keeps fiber from getting on your pants and it allows you to better see your drafting zone. The lap cloth is reversible -- it has a light side and a dark side so you can pick which better contrasts against your fiber. The lap portion of the cloth has alternating colored lines quilted across it at one inch increments to allow you to easily measure your drafting zone for consistent treadles per inch (if that's your thing!). Fully lined pockets in a coordinating print hang down on either side of your lap and are partially detached allowing you to store and access tools no matter if you are using the light or dark side of the cloth.
Overall dimensions: 14.25" width x 36" length

Pocket dimensions: 12.75"width x 6.5" length
These lap cloths are painstakingly sewn and quilted by my mom in her home studio.
