This gorgeous blanket was created using all of our solar dyed yarn from 2018, so is available as a strictly limited edition of only 32 blankets. Many visitors will have seen the jars in our dye garden over the summer months. Slowly, with the heating and cooling of the water in the jars, the colour was transferred to the yarn, each hank of wool taking about 3 months to dye. Among the plant materials we used were Madder Root, Onion Skins, Daffodils, Dahlias, Bog Myrtle, Avocadoes, Rhubarb and Yellow Flag Iris.
We created a background of a soft grey natural wool and added stripes of the solar dyes, each one outlined with a little of our own Hebridean wool. The result is a lovely soft grey blanket with bold stripes of the naturally dyed yarn – a small reminder of last summer`s beauty.
A beautiful accessory for any home, this blanket will look great in the bedroom or as a throw on your favourite chair … fabulous for snuggling up on the sofa too!
