ROCKPOOL COWL SCARF 3.3
Inspired by the wild seas of Scotland and the rugged landscapes that border it, the Rockpool Cowl Collection has been handwoven using all natural fibres, sourced, spun and dyed in the UK.
For me, the future of craft is tied to the sustainability and the traceability of the piece as a whole and I try to reflect this ethos with the raw materials for each new design. Each cowl in the new collection is unique, woven using a complex double cloth pattern on the studio loom over the course of a three month period.
Blending heritage techniques with modern technology allows me to create pieces which have a timeless feel with a contemporary twist. I try to create designs which are more organic and flowing than most traditional fabrics, patterns within patterns which blend colours, shape and tell a story of the sea.
The mix of warp shades add visually to the finished fabric, blending to give a depth of texture and movement to the woven pattern. The Rockpool Cowl has a range of wearable options and has no obvious front, enabling it to be more versatile than traditional scarves.

Pieces can be handwashed in warm (not hot!) water with a gentle wool detergent then rinsed. Be careful not to agitate the fabric when washing and squeeze gently but do not wring.
They are best left to air dry on a flat surface out of direct sunlight.
My products are made to last and am happy to help with any small repairs for free (not applicable to hand-dyed pieces). Postage is not included in repairs and will be your responsibility.
