A handwoven looped scarf in 100% wool by Belfast maker Nicola Gates. The textural, weave is inspired by birch woods in winter - Beith is the Irish word for birch. "Glimpses of stark white uprights interspersed with the deep reddish glow of the tips of the trees; a memory captured on a journey home from the beautiful Glenveagh area of County Donegal."
Available in a choice of three beautiful colours; charcoal, raspberry or lilac, the handwoven cloth incorporates authentic Donegal yarn with its distinctive homespun texture. The design has been drafted on paper, then woven on a traditional floor loom, powered entirely by hand and foot. The cloth is then carefully stitched and finished. Made in small batches in Nicola's studio in the Cavehill area of Belfast.
