I love weaving shawls, creating them to be classic pieces – loved over a life time. I have chosen the best natural fibres and use slow traditional weaving techniques so that Feather & Hay shawls last for many years. The designs are simple and elegant: each shawl a tangible link to a wild Scotland. The pieces reflect colours, textures, traditions and stories.
The shawls and scarves are designed, dyed, hand woven and finished in my studio on the North East coast of Scotland. I create textiles to a high standard but sometimes I create pieces that don’t quite fit the Feather & Hay collection. The fibres, colours and designs are still beautiful but I might not be happy with the overall dye work or length of the piece.
I was sad that these pieces wouldn’t be loved and enjoyed.
These shawls will be given to people through ‘giveaways’ or to raise money for worth causes, particularly ones that protect and highlight Scotland’s wild spaces. I love weaving but I love sharing my textiles more. If a shawl or scarf brings comfort, identity, solace and connection – then I feel like I am winning at life! I will use these pieces as an opportunity to connect with you. Tell me your story….
Would you like to win one?
I will start giveaways in 2021. There will be chances on Facebook, Instagram and via the VIP mailing list. Make sure you have liked and signed up to get the chance to win a hand woven shawl. To win I will be asking how a Feather & Hay shawl would be used in your life? Would you use it as a scarf? Hang it over the edge of a fire side chair: ready for those small snatched moments of tea and favourite book? Will it match a soft linen dress on a summer evening? Or make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time?
