One of a kind naturally dyed wool blanket. Soft rambouillet merino wool; raised, woven, and hand dyed in California with Eucalyptus and Black Walnut leaves. Lovingly bundled and heated in a cauldron over fire, until the image and energy of the leaves are dyed into the textile.
100% Fibershed Certified Climate Beneficial™ wool, locally + ethically wild-harvested leaves, sticks, string, water, fire, time, and intention.

This living textile is made in collaboration with the land, sheep, plants, and people of California.
I design, cut, fringe, and dye each piece with plants and minerals in Northern California (currently Quincy, Mountain Maidu land). The fabric is woven at Huston Textile in Rancho Cordova CA (Nisenan land). The sheep are raised with care and Climate Beneficial™ land management practices in North Eastern California on Bare Ranch (Northern Paiute land). These interconnections are inspired, encouraged, and nurtured by Fibershed, a project which develops regional and regenerative fiber systems, from soil to soil.
