This neckwarmer is hand knitted using hand spun locally sourced sheep's wool and naturally hand dyed from a bouquet of flowers. 


 Sky's Ryeland fleece and Little Landford's Southdown fleece have been hand dyed using natural dyes from sunflowers, chrysanthemums, woad and walnuts, and will age and fade gently and gracefully, echoing the beauty of the flowers in the bouquet.

Undyed Ryeland fleece has been needle felted to create lily-shaped tassels to trim the corners of the neckwarmer.
