Gold Moon

Large Blanket

178cm x 110cm (plus fringe)

A luminous golden textile woven in richly textured Shetland wools, traditionally dyed with Crottle Lichen & Henna. The lichen is ecologically sourced and used with care and skill by a traditional dyer to extract the beautiful colour, which also scents the wool with a glorious rich, heathery perfume. There is also a deep band of wild Muga silk, which gives a burnished, gilded glow of natural gold.

Chalky white linen-cotton warp.

***********

Bright Moon Yarn is ethical and traceable, using the wonderful natural resource of South Down Wool and Romney Marsh Fleece from Sheep Ahoy Animal Rescue in Kent, UK. Once sheared, the fleece is then processed in Cornwall by The Natural Fibre Company. This beautiful local fleece creates the base for all blended skeins used in Imogen's textiles, and additional fibre blends such as wild silk and linen are sourced to meet the highest standards of environmentalism, animal welfare and sustainability.
