Limestone Shawl
  • Limestone Shawl

    Handwoven shawl in a deep grey Shetland wool 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 and weld. 

    The shawl is fairly lightweight which makes it very easy to wrap around the body in various ways.  It has been woven in a 'summer and winter' pattern, which elicits different strenghts of colour and pattern on each side.

    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.


    Shawl measures 41cm x 180cm
