WOVEN GEMS

BEASTS & BATTLE EDITION


Set your alarms for 7 pm BST, this Friday 21st June, and get your hands on an individual hand-dyed, handwoven, handmade project bag. 


These are limited and exclusive and won’t be repeated.


Each bag has been woven and sewn so that no two bags are the same. 


There are a variety of colour combinations, textures and patterns, as well as different styles, depending on whether you favour a drawstring or a zip closure. 


Each bag incorporates hand-dyed yarn, which has then been handwoven on a rigid heddle loom and sewn individually - thus comprising the creative skills of three independent makers.

Down Sheepy Lane

Let's meet Debbie, the dyer and maker of all things at Down Sheepy Lane. Debbie work's from her dye studio to produce luxury yarns on various bases using a range of dyeing techniques. Debbie's yarn has become an eclectic mix of colours with inspiration coming from here childhood family memories and is also heavily influenced by books, TV and pop culture.


The Beasts & Battle Edition

With the intention being to highlight the beautiful hand-dyed yarn from Down Sheepy Lane, we elected to use (for the most part) commercially available, solid colours for the warp, and then vary the patterns and textures on the weft using Debbie’s fingering weight yarns.


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Colourways: Snidget; Firecracker


These two colourways – a vibrant bright yellow and an orangey/red – were ideal candidates for a woven fabric, with their different speckles and splashes showing up beautifully against a plain warp. When worked together, especially in the lace pattern, the two complimented each other to very pretty effect.

Games of Thrones

Colourways: Winterfell; Hand of the Queen; King in the North; Dani


The four colourways we used comprised rich, deep, purples, blues and blacks, together with speckles and a bright turquoise. Not being familiar with the TV show, I used images from the Internet to get a feel for the mood of these colours and, seeing the stunning costumes and sets, could not help but to add texture in the way of chunky hand-spun Jacob yarn, faceted beads, and sparkling purple and metallic grey lurex.


The Bags

All bags are in the newly launched luxury style with internal lining pockets, suede handles and made with the usual high quality and precision of all the TLGG bags. 


Each bag incorporates hand-dyed yarn, which has then been handwoven on a rigid heddle loom and sewn individually - thus comprising the creative skills of three independent makers.
