The ‘Wildwood’ – Lambswool Shawl
Wildwood: meaning an uncultivated wood or forest that has been allowed to grow naturally.
Inspired by the ancient forests found in Scotland the Wildwood Lambswool Shawl is a connection to early and modern forestry: a mix of folk stories and conservation. The Caledonian forest was once prolific across the landscape and there is now much conservation work to restore many of the varieties that would have been easily found in ancient times.

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 and tactile qualities will entwine with everyday memories to become heirlooms of the future.
I use traditional craft skills and high quality 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: there can be small, hand entwined fibre inlays or glass beading.
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.
