Our price: £21.00

I was delighted to source these handwoven fringed cotton stoles from Karnataka in southern India. They are just asking to be embellished with a stitch or two. The texture of the fine cotton warp yarn shows up so well in the main section when crossed with the indigo dyed weft and it is a joy to stitch into.

In this pack there is a 25 metre skein of wool/silk blend thread that I have dip dyed in indigo, 12 metres of coloured embroidery threads, a needle and a little gentle guidance. There’s a simple stitch guide too but how you choose to embellish is entirely up to you. I simply added kantha stitches to the white end sections of the one you see here. 

The stole is a generous size - 150cm long and 68cm wide. It will soften with use. It can be worn in multiple ways but also makes a fine table runner or hammam towel and could be sewn into a short sleeved summer top. Whatever you choose to do, I hope you take your time and enjoy the gentle process

Saturday still life with stitches
The slow slow development of a new kit.
Because I’m worth it!
I do plan to share, though
We kept hens for years and years but left our wee flock with the new owners when we moved house nearly five years ago. We miss their burbling chatter.
Today I bought a box from a roadside ‘shop’ close to home and was delighted at these lovelies when I opened it up 🤗
