As the main
control freak weaver and someone who likes to think they know more about our customers’ preferences, I get overall design approval. However, I get that it’s important Mr Weaving Heart has an input too – the trick is balancing how much…
So he chose the Claigan Coral Beach on Skye as the inspiration because we have spent many happy holidays there and Skye is really where the whole knitting/spinning/weaving started.
With white sand (made from hundred of millions of tiny shells) and crystal clear blue water it looks straight out of somewhere very hot like the Maldives. Except it isn’t, it’s freezing, something I confirmed after I decided to go skinny dipping while Mr Weaving Heart and Adam looked on in shock. Sea swimming during winter in Scotland must be one of the most exhilarating things you can ever do!
We chose mercerised cotton for the warp, as it has a jewel-like quality and perfect for the clear water and that kind of translucent light Skye is famous for. As for the draft, well it had to be pebble weave really didn’t it?
