The Story behind the Light on the Loch Square Scarf
The Light on the Loch Square Scarf has a hand dyed warp making this a limited edition piece. Hand Woven with a delightful museling-free Merino wool & eco-friendly Tencel it is a soft yet smooth and cool scarf. Square scarves are perfect for keeping the chill off without having long lengths of fabric.
The colours are inspired by the evening light rippling across the green loch. There is a loch in the Cairngorms called Lochan Uaine that is said to have a green tinge because of the fairies washing their clothes there at night. Chosen as part of the Lost Words Collection we think this magically themed colourway is unique and beautiful addition.
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.
Fold your scarf into a triangle and then tie or pin at the neck.
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.

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!
