Description

As Winter’s cold reaches its tendrils of frost and snow ever deeper into the season, and nights are long, my weaving and makings often turn to winter whites and greys, as I find that the palette of winter is so often more beautiful than we give it credit for.


I also find that the winter grandmothers of the land such as the Cailleach, a winter crone/grandmother who is found all over Ireland and Scotland deep within the lore and lands there.
The Cailleach is the grandmother of both the mountains and lands, of the loch’s and moors, but also of the deep caves and craggy places where no humans tend to roam, especially in the wintertime.
She is a bringer of change, be it large or small, be it welcome or not, and deep within the winter darkness she holds us to our dreams, bringing transformation and initiation, wanted or not…
This shawl carries the essence of the winter Cailleach within the colours of grey and white, of wild hair and craggy hillsides, it is a mantle to keep you warm over these cold months, and I hope you like it…
Along with this piece I have also included the option to bring home a white Deer drum. This is a piece from my personal collection that I made many years ago now. I made a collection of drums that carried the essence of the winter snow within them, and paired each with an animal that also carries the white of snow in the winter.. This piece was paired with the snowy owl…
The deer antler handle is inlaid with a smooth piece of Kyanite and the mallet is also a deer antler handle with a spiral shell.
*These pieces can be bought together or separate*
