Our new range of asymmetric lambswool scarves was inspired by looking at Skye’s natural landscape in close-up.
Phil Gorton is an analogue photographer who enjoys exploring the small and beautiful things around us as much as we do. With his unusual perspectives and close-up photography he manages to capture colourful moments, intriguing shapes and dramatic light effects even on the most grey and monotone days.
Two of our new scarves were inspired by Phil’s photography. The first picture shows two Periwinkles rotating in a shallow rock pool near Cleat Skerry, on the shore of Loch Vatten, in the north west of Skye.
The second picture was shot on the Pool Roag shoreline. It shows a close-up of the bright yellow and white lichens which so often adorn rocks along Skye’s seashore.
The third picture was taken by myself on a walk with Roger. It shows a rocky path meandering up into Coire a Ghreadaidh, one of the many scenic corries in the heart of the Cuillin Hills.
You can buy the scarves in our online shop or directly from us in Glendale. Phil Gorton’s fine art photographic studio is about fifteen minutes away and we highly recommend a visit there. Can’t make it up here? Contact Phil to get the scarf inspiration picture sent to you.
