FOULDEN HILLS #1 - natural undyed merino
or 6 weekly payments from $16.67 learn more
Our Foulden Hills collection encapsulates a natural and hand crafted elegance people have
come to know McLean & Co for. There are two variations in our Foulden Hills Collection, so far, with another planned for Autumn 2024.
Our limited edition Foulden Hills #2 collection of scarves and wraps are woven with ultra-fine Merino and are entirely New Zealand grown and crafted. The Merino yarn was grown on the Gibson farm Foulden Hills, near Middlemarch, inland from Dunedin. Rod wove about 50 metres of this fabric, so when it's gone there will be no more.
The light brown and chocolate brown yarns used are all undyed natural colours, just as they came off the sheep. The traditional tartan design of this collection represents strength and unity, and references the heritage and values of McLean & Co and our passion for preserving traditional textile skills using the finest New Zealand yarn.
The Foulden Hills collection is made to be worn; it is durable, holds its shape, and is incredibly soft. You may notice slight irregularities in colour and texture - a feature inherent in hand crafted textiles, and one that sets the hand woven apart.
Wrap yourself in luxurious New Zealand quality, very limited edition with only a small number of scarves and wraps woven in this collection. Some stripe patterns may vary slightly to the images, depending on the length and width of the scarf or wrap.
YARN: 16 micron New Zealand Merino wool, in natural light brown and chocolate.
