New Felt Shawls

By 16/04/2019 April 17th, 2019 Blog

I have recently started to felt some of my shawls which are now in my shop. I am excited to share them with you. I weave them in Jacob wool then wash them so they just start felting just enough so you can still see the structure of the weave which is a 2/2 twill weave a very traditional weave which is used for Harris tweed. The Jacob wool I weave with has a soft open twist, keeping all its character after being washed, the fringes slightly start to matt together almost taking it back to being a fleece and showing it’s nature.

I continue to source 100% Pure British wool, something I am passionate about and want to share this with you. The yarns I use are spun from Shetland, Welsh Black Mountain, Jacob sheep and I am just starting to experiment with some Alpaca which I will hand dye, I will have a limited edition of individual neck warmers in my shop soon, I am looking forward to getting started and sharing these with you
