The Story behind the Fairy Realms Shawl
The Fairy Realms Shawl is a hand dyed warp and barely there pink weft that compliments the pretty pastel colours. Hand Woven in a pretty undulating Crackle weave in 100% Cotton. It is perfect for a little extra warmth any time of the year.
The colours were taken from a magical inspiration photo picked by the Feather & Hay tester & chat group members. The initial inspiration was more vibrant than the two pieces made with the soft pink weft.The weft was chosen to turn the bright colours softer and produce a pastel version of the original. This Fairy Realms Shawl is part of the Community Weaving Project Collection.
The Community Weaving Project Collection was woven based on the decisions made the Facebook group. The purpose of this project was to give followers of F&H the chance to experience a bespoke made textile. There are two baby wraps from this project that are still out visiting members all over the World. Read more about the project here.
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!
