The Inner Wild Ancestors Apron is my little homage to my ancestors, the hardy, strong, self-sufficient women of the Hebrides of Scotland (next stop America).
The Ancestors Apron is heavily textured, hand knitted in a traditional knot-work pattern reminiscent of family roots and wild grasses woven by the wind.
It is hand-dyed in gorgeous ink tones of black and gray.
The yarn is a rich, heavy, soft and luxurious hand-dyed Araucania pure merino wool from Chile.
You can wear the Inner Wild Ancestors Apron all kinds of ways. When I put it on to take the photographs, I realised it is also very kilt-like somehow, I love that.
This is a wonderful top layer garment for those who, like me, love the layered-look. Or to make a simple statement against a solid neutral or color block or even pattern.
