‘Lithic Liath’ Scarf
The ‘Lithic Liath’ Scarf has been hand woven for those that love wild landscapes. The word Lithic is a geological word that means ‘something pertaining to stone’ and Liath is a Gaelic word meaning ‘to make grey’. The Highlands, particularly the eastern Cairngorm National Park in Scotland is a place of mountains and granite plateaus. A landscape steeped in folk stories and wild spaces.
The Feather & Hay textiles are hand woven in my studio in the North East of Scotland. I use natural British yarns with high sustainability and ethical qualities. The hand spun yarns feature fibres from local Scottish sources such as Alpaca and sheep wool blending them with other beautiful fibres like Nettle & Rose.
This simple scarf design is for those that love to wrap themselves in something cosy but light for the colder months.

Hand woven in Scotland
To choose a hand woven textile is to accept a slower pace. The Feather & Hay floor loom is powered by hand and foot not electricity, continuing a long history of hand weaving in Scotland. I believe in well made, hand crafted textiles that go beyond utility. Feather & Hay creates textiles whose aesthetics, ethics and tactile qualities entwine with the wild stories of the Scottish Highlands to become heirlooms of the future.
I use traditional craft skills and the finest natural materials to make one off textiles that respect the earth and look beautiful. Feather & Hay chooses high quality, renewable and sustainable fibres. This ensures a long lasting textile that does not deplete the planet’s resources. Feather & Hay dyes, hand weaves, hem stitches, washes and finishes each textile within North East Scotland.
The designs reflect wild places. Often telling the story of the smaller details only noticed by those that immerse themselves in nature and respect its wild and natural balance. Each textile has unique, intuitively added embellishments such as small, hand entwined fibre inlays.
The shawls and scarves are woven to feel comfortable against the skin. I have combined the very best fibres to ensure each piece is soft, warm and smooth.
Feather & Hay doesn’t just make textiles. Each hand woven piece starts with a story rooted in the natural world. Inspiration springs from the landscape, its history, rhythms and cycles.
Commissioned work is available so get in touch if you would like something especially made.
Washing your Textile
You do not need to pre-wash your item, each piece has been finished ready to use. Feather & Hay textiles are washed in 100% Coconut oil soap. This is free from synthetic detergents, phosphates, optical brighteners, enzymes, fragrances and preservatives.
To preserve the beauty and magic of your Feather & Hay textile it is best to hand wash and line dry.
