Ponchos, or thereabouts

Fun with a photoshoot in a late summer field, to give you a taste of These Isles weavings coming up for sale in my Etsy shop soon: next up, eight ponchos in mostly artisan British yarns, some undyed, some handspun, some plant dyed, and some dyed in sea colours – plus one with some wholesome Himalayan nettle yarn from a small import business in my local market which buys direct from the gnarly women spinners in the rugged Nepali mountains. (They use their teeth with drop spindles as they tramp the mountain paths.)

Stay tuned for the listings appearing over the next few weeks as those of us in the northern hemisphere prepare ourselves for autumn.



PS Please don’t say you want the plain dark brown (Hebridean) one (the last one) – I’m keeping that one for myself. But please do say if you love it as I’ll bear you in mind to maybe make some more like it.

    • Hi Elaine, thank you!

      Prices will start at £400.

      Sorry, I’m wondering which one you mean as none of these is strictly grey, I’ve just neutralised the photos a bit. I’m guessing you’ll be looking at the dark duckegg/slate blue ones.

      In my Etsy shop I’ll be listing all these ones here plus two *actual* (pale) grey ones (not pictured here) over the next fortnight. The photos there will be truer and less stylised so you’ll better know what you’re getting.

      If you go to http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/theseisles and ‘follow’ my shop you should automatically get the alerts, but to be safe do also drop me a message via Etsy as then I can contact you back and alert you manually myself.

      Thanks for your interest Elaine.

      Good wishes,
