The Story behind the Cairngorms Supersoft Shawl

Cairngorms Supersoft Shawl is a hand dyed warp paired with a wonderful tweed blend weft. With the hand painted nature of the design and Feather & Hay’s small weaving runs this is a limited edition piece. Hand Woven in the traditional looking plaited twill, it is a classic design with the originality of hand dyeing . Perfect for keeping warm even for those with sensitive skin.

The colours are inspired by the soft blue-grey stones found in the Cairngorms. If you’re lucky enough to see them close up you’ll find delicate mosses and lichens and these are reflected in the shawl. Chosen as part of the Lost Words Collection we believe the soft and gentle colours should be celebrated and remembered.

The Lost Words Collection has been created to conjure words that remind us of the simple beauty found in nature. Words that are being lost in a world full of technological language. Each hand woven piece from this collection has its name hand stamped on a leather label, helping to summon the power those words hold when they are remembered and spoken.

Feather & Hay creates limited edition textiles. Each piece has a story to tell, inspired by nature, the landscape or the seasonal flow of country living. Our creations immerse the wearer in the power of wild; touching, holding and possessing will summon it’s magic.

Our textiles are hand woven on Feather & Hay’s floor loom in Scotland, using especially sourced and high quality raw materials. Each textile created thread by thread brings an original hand made item that respects the rhythm of nature. Commissioned work is available please get in touch if you would like something especially made.


How do I wash my hand woven item?

To preserve the beauty and magic of your Feather & Hay textile it is best to hand wash and line dry when required.

You do not need to pre-wash your item, each piece has been finished read for immediate use.

For plant based (cellulose) fibres use a non-bio detergent in hand warm water. Ecover is a good example of a gentle detergent.

For animal based (protein) fibres use a detergent suitable for delicates (often described as ‘for wool or silk’). Keep the temperature just warm to the hand and try not to agitate the fabric when washing. Remember felting can occur with heat, water & friction!
