Ancients Of Gondor™ Riddle Of Strider Spares
✔ Great all-rounder ✔ Strong & supportive ✔ Luxurious yarns ✔ Ethically made in Scotland
Woven with BCI cotton, bamboo and Shantung Tussah silk, this luxurious fabric is wonderfully strong and supportive while also being soft and malleable in hand. It will give comfy carries for your little ones through toddlerhood and will need just a little bit of wear to become buttery soft. Coloured flecks, a characteristic of this Shantung Tussah silk, make for a truly unique fabric that looks gorgeous up close. Silk is loved for the cush and bandage-like support around you and your little one, it stays in place well and is very comfortable all year round. This blend combined with the lovely texture of our Ancients of Gondor pattern gives this fabric a good balance of grip and glide, making it easy to tie. This beautiful fabric is woven on a striking organic cotton dark jewel grad which runs from midnight blue through burgundy and dark green to black. The trees in this pattern each represent part of the lineage of the White Trees. The original White Tree was much beloved by the Elves, it emanated silver light, and it is said the Moon was formed from its last silver flower. Each tree thereafter is seen to symbolise divine qualities of goodness, wisdom and purity. A flowing script over the trees reads: “Not all those who wander are lost, The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost”, Quoting Bilbo’s poem “The Riddle Of Strider” in honour of Aragorn. This fabric is also woven with BCI cotton. By using BCI cotton we ensure that our cotton meets the Better Cotton Initiative’s high standards of environmental, economic and social responsibility. Our BCI cotton is also organic, meaning it is grown with care and without chemicals keeping the land, and farmers, healthy.
