In this cushion I have used a variety of pure wool from different sheep breeds: zwartbles black wool, Jacob white. A coarse rams wool was dyed with Madder root for a hot red colour, and a second dye of madder to make a coral colour. Soft purple was made with a cochineal dye. The warp and the weft are both handspun, and hand woven with a striking cream band across the cushion.
A stylish and fascinating talking point, it will make a great accent to any home and also a wonderful gift for the Eco conscious. Bring a touch of nature into your home!
I just know you will enjoy the cushions as much as I love making them!
