Naturally Dyed Circle Scarf – Coreopsis Orange

£54.00

Snuggly circular scarf knitted in Shetland-Romney lambswool, and dyed with homegrown Coreopsis Tinctoria flowers.

Clear
Sold By: Ria Burns

Description

Knitted in a bespoke Shetland-Romney lambswool yarn from a farm in Somerset, this cosy circle scarf can be worn long or wrapped around the neck for extra warmth. The snood is knitted in an English rib stitch which accentuates the softness of the yarn.

The vibrant colour blocks of yarn have been dyed with homegrown plants or food waste, with a section left undyed to showcase the naturally heathery shades of the lambswool yarn. Available in two naturally dyed shades – Coreopsis orange and Avocado pink.

Measurements: 126cm circumference, 15cm wide.

The yarn is dyed by hand by Ria using homegrown dye plants or food waste, then knitted on vintage hand powered knitting machines in her Bristol studio. Due to the nature of natural dyeing, colours may vary slightly to the sample shown.

About the Maker:

Ria Burns Knitwear aims to champion the natural hues and qualities of British wool, incorporating vibrant flashes of colour through hand dyeing with homegrown and foraged plants.

Inspired by the conflict between the natural and the man-made, this translates into a knitwear collection that is an antidote to fast fashion, designed for longevity and made to be cherished, looked after and passed on.

Ria is continually working on ways in which her pieces can be produced more sustainably and has a three point action plant to work from - local wool, local plants, local production.
