The Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, … The next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it. Similarly, the 3 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+2).
We were inspired by the sequence and used the numbers of the sequence to dictate our stripe pattern calculations, e.g. 1, 2, 3,5,8,13… became 5, 13, 3, 8, 2… etc. in order for the stripes to be of visual significance we enlarged the original numbers by 4… so if you count the threads you would see 20, 52, 12, 32,8…
If you are following, well done! One of our more creative moments.
Fibonacci blankets are therefore woven multicoloured coloured stripes against a Shetland white background. This is a beautiful and unique item, and available in our farm shop. Each blanket is a one of a kind and made in small quantities.
