Ailidh Lennon is a weaver and plant dyer, living and working on the Isle of Iona.
Ailidh Lennon makes sustainable textiles that are bound to the landscape of her home, the Isle of Iona. Using single-origin yarn from local sheep, Ailidh works with the natural fleece colour and hand dyes the yarn with plants and lichen gathered on the island. The colours of the fleece and dyes depend on the changing environmental factors of the season, allowing the natural elements to influence the design process. Ailidh uses traditional tapestry and resist dyeing techniques to interpret the abstract shapes and shifting shades from the landscape into her handwoven rugs, scarves and other unique heirloom pieces.
