Each blanket and wrap is unique and woven freehand, allowing the design to develop organically on the loom, in subtle, muted colourways.
Fibres used - A painterly blend of handspun yarns in the warm grey natural shading of fleece; a colourway that features tones of grey and dusky brown, with golden tips. Ethical South Downs Wool blended with rose grey blue-faced Leicester, wild Muga silk and British Alpaca wools on a warp of textured, softened cotton linen yarn.
On a warp of biodynamic and organic North Ronaldsay yarn. Rich deep warm greys, golden lustre strands, deep chocolate brown strands, wild locks and texture, heavy, warm, draping.
The colour palette of warm stone greys and soft browns in this collection are highlighted with the metallic golden lustre of wild silk and highly textured matte wool in soft, custom-blended yarns.
Bright Moon Yarn is ethical and traceable, using the wonderful natural resource of South Down Wool and Romney Marsh Fleece from Sheep Ahoy Animal Rescue in Kent, UK. Once sheared, the fleece is then processed in Cornwall by The Natural Fibre Company. This beautiful local fleece creates the base for all blended skeins used in Imogen's textiles, and additional fibre blends such as wild silk and linen are sourced to meet the highest standards of environmentalism, animal welfare and sustainability.
Imogen Di Sapia and apprentice Rose Riedel O'Brien are British weavers and exhibiting artist-makers of textiles, working with hand-weaving combined with storytelling, folklore and heritage crafts to create her studio textiles.
