Woven on my Louet Jane loom at home, these cowls (or snoods) are made using natural dark hebridean wool from Croft 29 on Skye as the warp and naturally dyed Shetland and Blue Faced Leicester by Shilasdair Yarns, who are based a short distance away from Croft 29 on Skye. The beautiful natural shades are shown off against the dark hebridean with an undulating twill. The ends of these beautiful cowls are sewn together and hand stitched with a vintage silk binding. The silk used was gifted to me years ago by my mother-in-law when she bought some when the last of the Macclesfield silk mills closed down. The dyes used by Shilasdair Yarns were cutch, alder, meadowsweet, tansy (sourced on Skye), madder and indigo (on its own and with the yellow dyes).
These cowls are a very limited addition (no more than 2 of each one). Currently 14 in stock.
