I was absolutely thrilled when the gorgeous duo Menae and Louise from Darling X Two in Como approached me to make some weaves especially for their store. I absolutely love the challenge of working with a client to create something to reflect their own personal style and aesthetic.
I chose a neutral palette with accents of blush and gold and little subtle details of fringing and roving to add warmth and soft texture. Darling X Two place importance on sourcing their products ethically, so I used wools such as Manos del uruguay Maxima one of my favourite wools, as it is a certified fair trade and is hand-dyed and hand-spun by a cooperative of rural Uruguyan women. The aim of the organisation producing the wool is to bring economic and social opportunities to women living in rural communities. I sourced all of my yarns for this project, including a beautiful plant dyed wool by Harriet Goodall, from Raw Craft in Robertson.
