The Story behind the Little Doves of Gold Shawl
Named Little Doves for the soft grey warp colours and gold for the pattern weft Tencel. Think of Autumn’s early golden light playing across the delicate wings of a collared dove early.
The fibres chosen for this the Little Doves of Gold Shawl create a luxurious textile. The fabric is smooth and strong with the perfect amount of softness too.
Feather & Hay creates limited edition textiles. Each piece has a story to tell, inspired by nature, the landscape or the seasonal flows and rhythms. Each creation immerses the wearer in the power of wild; summoning the magic of a colour, texture or pattern
The 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!
