Autumn Check Shawl
This beautiful check shawl reminds us of the low light of Autumn striking the hills and turning them a lovely burnt orange. The orange yarn in the shawl was dyed with Crotal (a lichen) harvested on the farm here at Ardalanish. As the Crotal is slow-growing we never strip-harvest and leave several years between collecting at the same location.
The grey shades are from Hebridean and Shetland fleeces and the white background is pure white Shetland wool, which gives a lovely smooth, soft finish to the shawl.
A wonderful garment to wear, our shawls can also double as a throw for your favourite chair or to snuggle into on those autumn and winter evenings.
