The Story behind Feather & Hay’s Fabric Packs
Each of the fabric packs provide a unique set of textiles. Many of the pieces used have been part of a sampling warp and are the only pieces made in that colour, fibre and or weave combination. Feather & Hay’s hand woven and hand dyed fabrics are one-off pieces of art, tactile in nature and all with stories behind them.
The fabric packs are new to Feather & Hay. We cannot wait to see what you make with them. We hope you’ll share your new makes.
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!
