BOTANICAL INKS ENGLISH CASHMERE: MADDER + INDIGO. LIMITED EDITION BLANKET SCARF

It’s an honor to have the English Cashmere Blanket Scarf from Botanical Inks.

Botanical Inks is a natural dye house offering a gentle and kind way of working with color, in harmony with the natural systems of this World.

They provide natural dye production services for brands whilst also producing our own soil-to-soil productions which demonstrate the possibility of scaled-up holistic, soil-to-soil systems, including the Bristol Cloth project and the English Cashmere project.

English Cashmere Blanket Scarf

Holistically farmed wool from the Mendips, near Bristol, offers the highest standards of animal welfare along with soil rebuilding techniques and maximised carbon sequestration.

Indigo leaf used with a dip dye technique offers an ombre of sky to midnight blues. Hand dyed in a fructose vat made with only 3 simple natural ingredients- indigo, fructose and lime.

Madder root brings a variety of blush pink to dusty peach hues which ripple and reflect tonal variations across each uniquely woven piece.

These yarns are dyed on the hank using a pioneering approach, taking traditional natural dyes into a commercial dye house complex, with scaled up capacity machinery, whilst creating the re-emerging possibility for the use of non-toxic natural dyes within the British Textile Industry once again.

These dyed colours sit next to the natural, un-dyed ecru English Cashmere fleece colour.

Non-toxic mineral salts are used to fix the natural dyes to the fibre, to create resilient and long lasting colourfast results.

100% Mongolian grade Cashmere- holistically farmed in Devon – The only source of cashmere fibre in England.
Naturally dyed with organic indigo and organic madder root.
Artisan woven in Bristol

Size: 208 cm x 83cm

Made with the only English source of Mongolian-grade Cashmere – the finest Cashmere in the World.
