Carole Waller handpainted green modal shawl – ‘Glider’ is one of a series of pieces inspired by watching paragliders launch and float over the English landscape from the top of the Malvern Hills so beloved of Elgar, Tolkien, George Bernard Shaw – and hundreds of hill walkers.
This piece has lots of grey tones with bits of stoney and aqua colours, a swoop of orange and lime green..
Modal is a lovely soft fabric suitable for wearing all year round – matte and delicate and made from woodpulp. It holds colour brilliantly – and washes well.
Wash by hand – the shawls measure 70cm/28″ by 210cm/82″
