Sophisticated greys and fun splashes of colour – this warm, cosy lap throw is perfect for snuggling under while you lose yourself in a book, a movie or a deep conversation.
Inspired by urban graffiti, this unusual design is part of my Urban Colour collection. I wanted to capture the uninhibited energy of spray paint on concrete, so I chose a palette of greys and contrasted these with bright colours in a lively, dynamic pattern.
I wove it on my 8-shaft countermarche loom, finished it with a twisted fringe and then fulled it at my kitchen table to produce a soft, lightly felted surface. Finally, I brushed it to raise the nap, which helps to trap warmth and adds to that cuddly feeling.

To care for your lambswool throw, you should either have it dry cleaned or wash it by hand using a gentle soap, lay it flat to dry and then press with a cool iron.
Cally Booker is a handweaver based in Dundee and much of her inspiration is drawn from the city: from the grandeur of its waterfront setting to the details of quirky buildings and everyday living.
In both her exhibition pieces and in her micro collections of accessories and homewares under the Bonny Claith label, she makes extensive use of multi-layered weaves. The interplay of different layers of colour gives her work its distinctive appeal.
Cally is passionate about making things by hand and shares her love of weaving through The Weaving Space, a programme of workshops based in her colour-filled studio.
