A little more about the Little Red Hooded Shawl
There is a little magic that happens every time one thread crosses another, it may be colour, texture, the softness or delicacy of that fabric, but when a textile is made by the human hand it is more than just cloth.
I believe there is a spell in creating – whether we make it by music, by paint or by thread… so it won’t surprise you that I have now made something a little different to every day life.
The Little Red Hooded Shawl is hand cut using F&H’s hand woven fabric. I have designed the hooded shawls to feature large hoods with soft 100% Cotton Velvet lining complimenting the hand woven fabric and ensuring a smooth feel near the face.
The Little Red Hooded Shawl by F&H is unique and magical but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t make it practical too! Wear them as a shawl over dresses (it is you turn to be a fairy queen.) OR as a scarf with a hood over coats for every day. This one won’t stay in the cupboard waiting to be worn!
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!
