Drawing inspiration from nature, woven on industrial looms almost a century old, Mourne Textile’s new range of luxury scarves keep cold at bay. They are crafted from materials such as Merino Wool, Cashmere, Mohair Loop, and Silk, in colours that include Indigo and textured Grey.
The weave of this Textured Herringbone Scarf is based on an original design by Mourne Textiles’ founder Gerd Hay-Edie from the 1960s for Irish fashion designer Sheila Mullally. The yarn mix creates a soft, luxurious scarf with subtle colour variation from scattered nepps and burrs, characteristic of our custom-spun yarns from Donegal.
These scarves are woven on vintage shuttle looms in our workshop at the foothills of the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland. Our Hattersley looms, first developed in 1919, are tried and tested over decades, creating a rich weave and woven selvedge. The scarf designs and colours are inspired by the landscape of the Mourne peninsula.
Following the success of our Rainbow Scarf fundraise, we are delighted to announce that 15% of all scarf sales taken on our website, will be donated to the Northern Ireland Hospice and Children’s Hospice.
