Description

My limited edition blanket/throws are woven in pure British wool. They are woven in a twill weave which makes them warm without being too heavy. They are very versatile so can be used in many different ways and for many occasions. They make great wedding presents, all my nieces and nephews have one of my blankets as a wedding present.

Blankets are very special things, they seem to hold the memories of family events, my family blanket is a good example of this, it came every where with us, like another family member, it was in all the photographs, it came on every picnic and to the beach in the summer. I just had to make it again, replicating it and being able to share it with the rest of the family and with you.

About the Maker:

Sally Hampson grew up in an Irish household; her parents came to London where she was born along with her five brothers and sisters. They came with very little so the things they had were precious, a check wool blanket was one of them. Sitting on wooden crates making a rag rug out of old woollen suiting pieces was an early and indelible memory. She spent time with the shepherds in the Cheviot Hills on the Scottish boarder. This wild and rugged landscape continues to be an important part of what she wants to share through her weaving. These simple aesthetics have influenced Sally’s artistic career, from working in the theatre on costumes and sets, to travelling to Egypt, Ethiopia and Kenya, to work with artisan weavers, potters and basket makers. Always close to the colours and textures of natural materials and the simplest way of combining them together. Sally’s latest woven collection takes you into the heart of the British landscape. Transforms her journeys to the wild landscape of The Outer Hebrides and The Shetland Isles into unique woven textile pieces. In collaboration with bespoke mills in Shetland and Yorkshire, using wool from indigenous sheep, she has created pieces that truly represent the land.
