Paulette Rollo has been designing in Scotland for nearly 2 decades. Her work is recognizable clear colors and beautiful, complex weaves that update traditional Scottish loomwork . “From the Scots pine woods come inspiration from the natural palette,” she says “bracken, heather, native juniper...from tree bark, lichen on tree trunks, deep grey greens of berries turning to purple. Then there are all the subtle colors of the rocks of the Grampian mountains. Lots of granite. And the sky and dark steel waters of the North Atlantic. And then the caramel and pistachio from the golden fields of barley - a sparkley surprise.”
This handsome, fringed lap blanket is made of Scottish lambs wool in the nation’s last remaining vertical mill. Dyeing, spinning, warping, weaving & finishing are all done in a single, 200-year-old mill. Fiber-washed in clear, pure Scottish waters (coming down from the Grampians to the Firth), ensuring true clear non toxic colors and soft finish.
Based on traditional pattern, the 6 colors in the blanket are related like stained glass windows, from pale to deep. Soft and ample for the reading chair, or at the foot of a twin bed. Woven double face, with no true front or back.
