A one- off cushion cover completely handmade in Shropshire, England. I start with a raw sheep fleece, hand wash it, dye it with natural plant dyes - mostly from my garden and woodland plants. I hand card the wool, spin it on my wheel and then hand weave it to make these wonderfully textured cushion panels.

This generous sized cushion, also has a generous amount of textured bobbles! I have used a mixture of pure sheep wool - Wensleydale (a natural grey wool which is very soft and warm), and Jacob white dyed with elderberry, madder for the coral colour, golden rod and buddleia for yellows, saddened with iron mordant to make a mustard green. There are a couple of soft purple stripes to one side, this colour is made with a cochineal beetle dye.

It's a wonderfully tactile piece and will look great with a couple of my other cushions to compliment it.

A naturally stylish piece for the home which would also make a wonderful gift for the Eco conscious. Bring a touch of nature into your home!

If you value handed crafted work then have a look at my blog to find out more about my working process. I just know you will enjoy the cushions as much as I love making them!
