Shades of Suilven.

This is a cotton and linen shawl inspired by the moorland around the slopes of Suilven, a Scottish mountain in West Sutherland. The photograph was taken on a visit to the area last summer. The richness of the pinks and purples contrasting with the lush green grasses and the grey mountain where calling to be woven!

A design full of contrasts, both in the weave pattern and colour. I think I was looking to develop something very different and went on a journey of exploration. I hope you like the results. The colours include black, natural, red, rust orange, pink and blue. Woven in 50% Swedish linen and 50% USA cotton.
