Black and White Large Woven Shawl in a Traditional Shepherd Check
Hand finished with a natural 7cm fringe at either end.
245 x 70 cm.
Can be gently hand washed or in a washing machine on a gentle wool setting with a liquid wool soap.
Clipped and spun from the fleeces of Welsh Black Mountain and Jacob sheep creating tones of silver grey, peat brown and creamy white.
These natural un-dyed yarns are woven together creating stripes and structures that echo the markings of the surrounding hills.
This collection of blankets and shawls are woven in close collaboration with a bespoke mill run by father and son whose traditions go back to the industrial revolution.
The close locality of all the steps in the process from clipping the sheep to washing, spinning, sampling and weaving means a good carbon footprint
