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!
