Farrand Turquoise is woven on an ivory warp with a combination fill of our veronica blue and sylvan sienna. The result is that of natural turquoise with earth tones present. Farrand is heavy, but softens up quickly and becomes a fast favorite.

Please note, Farrand Turquoise is a heavyweight textile and is not suitable for infants or inexperienced wrappers.
Affectionally referred to as Newterre, Farrand takes all the beauty of the original Pavo Parterre and tears down the walls, loosens up the density, and adds some Sparkleberry cush.
Farrand is named for Beatrix Farrand an American Landscape designer who worked from 1895 until her death in 1959 near Garland Farm in Maine, her home and final garden. She is known for the planning and improvement of several college campuses, the John D Rockefeller carriage roads at Acadia National Park, and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden also on Mount Desert Island.
With Farrand we appreciate and celebrate the contributions of women in art and society including that of designer Bethanne Knudson owner of The Oriole Mill.
