Imprint of nature on wool, the story of a remade wool blanket.

In the beginning the hunt for pre-loved 100% wool blankets is a never ending search.

With pots bubbling on the fire place, blankets cut into sections, wrapped up with leaves, ferns and flowers collected from places explored, I wait…. 

I gather leaves, picking each individually for its shape or texture. Some perfect, while others show the cycle of life, chunks missing, curled, bitten or with lumps and bumps. Each one will leave its own unique imprint, a story only they can tell.

I wait…. as the pot continues to boil, I weave, I cook, I read, occupying my mind, calming my thoughts as I wait with anticipation of what will unfold. Waiting is the hardest part. 

Exploring this method and technique has been intense at times, having been disappointed on many occasions. All the time spent collecting, wrapping and waiting only to find at times a plain and undyed piece of fabric. 

Washed, dried and ironed these pieces of unique natural woollen prints are then placed together. Growing. The blanket starts to take shape. Each piece to blend in with the next, I start to sew. Each one sewn with intent, a raw and uncontained sewing technique. Matching the unique patterns and textures of the dyed blanket. 

Over time it may fade, grow holes or be stained with use. It will grow with you. These individual blankets tell their own story.

Keep me on the couch, or laid over the bed. A forever talking point and a  warm comforting addition to a cool night.

Fits wonderfully on a Double bed, pictured on a Queen bed.

Due to the handmade, repurposed nature of the blanket you will notice little woven patches where slight wear sections have been beautifully sewn over. Each little one tells a story. Please see photos for brown wool sewn mending.
