Queen Medb Merino Wool Scarf £210
Ltd edition of 300, 100% merino wool with a fringed edge, 140cm x 140cm
One of my favourite things about Irish mythology is how many strong female characters feature in the stories. One of the most fearsome and legendary has to be Meabh, warrior queen of Connacht. She ruled for sixty years, and had at least five husbands during her reign. It was her competitive relationship with one of these husbands, Ailill, which leads to the most famous Irish epic, The Táin, as she invades Ulster to attempt to capture their famous brown bull, but is defeated by a teenaged Cú Chulainn. This print features symbols of femininity, in both the roses and the Celtic patterns. The palette comes from the colours of the rocks and foliage in the mountains.
Please note that due to the nature of wool and with the scarves being printed in small batches that colours can vary slightly, although we try our best to ensure continuity. Due to this and computer/ phone screen settings the colours can look a little different to above. If you require a specific colour or shade we would advise purchasing from one of our retailers so you can view the product in real life before purchase.
