Combinations & Permutations Bandanas
Combinations and permutations of indigo and buckthorn dyes permeate natural fiber colors, and are recombined in a woven gradient plaid. The indigo, Persicaria tinctoria, a native of Asia, was purposefully grown from seed on my tiny plot of land. Common Buckthorn, a European shrub which is commonly considered an invasive here, was purposefully removed from nearby conservation land. The variety of shades was achieved by many different methods and combinations of dyeing and overdyeing with the two materials, as well as using different natural toned base yarns. The result is rich waves of earthy colors interacting with each other in the weaving.
These lightweight, generously sized, bandanas are great to tie around your neck, or over your head, for a splash of warmth, color and connection to the land. They can be folded triangularly in four different ways to highlight different colors.
25" square. Four available.
Wonderfully soft and squishy, the New England grown and spun fiber is 50% Romeldale wool / 50% fine grade alpaca. Hand wash.
