Riot of Summer Plaid Twill Bandanas
The Law of Conservation of Energy:
All the sun that hit the grass
that the wool-bearing animals ate,
And all the sun that touched
the plants that made the dyes,
And all the warmth in the soil
absorbed by the fungi,
And all the heat created
in hauling water rom the creek...
Harvested in the summer
and contained in this cloth
to release as perpetual coziness
These bandanas are an over-the-top celebration of both the vibrancy of Vermont summer and the variety and intensity of my local color. Each bandana has stripes of color that were grown and foraged within a mile of my studio: indigo, goldenrod, wild madder root, lobster mushroom, red-gilled corn mushroom, dyer's polypore mushroom, punctilia rudecta lichen, coreopsis flowers, and many more. They are woven in a twill weave for a substantial weight bandana that has a beautiful drape. May you be warmed by their cheerfulness!
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.
24" square. Four available in different color ways.
Wonderfully soft and squishy, the New England grown and spun fiber is 50% Romeldale wool / 50% fine grade alpaca. Hand wash.
