Winter Solstice pack of three organic cotton handkerchiefs
These handkerchiefs are sewn by me in my small cottage on the Northamptonshire and Leicestershire border. The image is printed in the UK onto an untreated cotton fabric certified as 100% organic. The approximate size for each handkerchief is 320 mm x 320 mm.
This pack of handkerchiefs contains the following designs:
Avebury and the Barn Owl
Glastonbury Tor and the Blackbird
Stonehenge and the Wiltshire Horn
The border for my Winter Solstice designs features Holly and Ivy. Both are important and sacred plants for this time of year. At the Winter Solstice, the Holly King loses his fight with the Oak King and the days will begin to get longer. Holly planted on boundaries or near to your home will prick evil spirits and prevent them from entering. Ivy represents life and re-birth as it often lives on after its host plant has died. The magical properties of ivy include protection, loyalty, fidelity, binding and cooperation. So it's a wonderful plant to have in the house as part of your family celebrations. I have also included some of the phases of the moon.
Full information and background on each of the designs can be found on their individual product pages.
Wash at 30°
Every handkerchief is sent out with the explanation of where the inspiration came from and with full care instructions.
Each order is wrapped in acid free, unbleached tissue paper, tied with yarn and includes a hand written thank you note. I am happy to address this to recipients of gifts at no extra cost. Just let me know in the notes when you place your order.
