This merino cowl has been printed using Cornus alba Siberica (dogwood) leaves from the garden at Clasheen and was processed by submersion in the dirty pot for approx 2 hours and 20 minutes.

It actually is one of three new accessories that I was able to make from an old woollen jumper that had seen better days. Who else loves up-cycling their own or thrifted clothing?
