Handwoven Shawl
  • Handwoven Shawl

    Handwoven shawl in a rich natural brown Romney lambswool with natural dyed patterning

    This shawl has been handwoven by Jade Ogden in Somerset, using local regeneratively farmed sheep wool from high on the Mendip Hills, less than 10 miles from the loom. Some of the wool has been hand dyed with plants, including madder root, weld and coreopsis flowers. The colours really pop out of the deep, natural brown of the sheep.

    The shawl has a lovely weight - from its high thread count - which creates a relaxed drape around the body. It has bold patterning on one side and on the reverse, the pattern is shown in a more subtle 'negative'.

    This textile has been slowly handcrafted on a table loom (which you can see in one of the images) - each thread has been passed through the warp, one-by-one, by hand. It is a 'soil-to-soil' textile, due to being crafted from pure natural materials, at the end of its long life it can be returned to nourish the earth via the compost heap.

    I hope you enjoy this unique, Somerset made textile.
