- Learn to Dye
Our blankets are woven from 100% linen in the northern part of Ireland. With two layers of linen, seamed together at the edges & pre-washed for additional softness and texture. This double layer adds weight, warmth & beauty to this heirloom piece.
Once the linen is woven, we hand-dye each piece using an extract from the heartwood of the Acacia Catechu tree. A small thorny tree native to South Asia, grown in Indonesia, East Africa and tropical America. I only dyed one of these in this colour making this piece, one of a kind
The process of hand dyeing is labour intensive as our textiles have to be carefully prepared & dipped over many hours to achieve the shades you see.
