My Trevose Head Collection of handwoven throws are inspired by my own childhood memories of this wonderful place. They were designed by me for my fundraising campaign to help the National Trust in its work to conserve the headland, and they are each handwoven by me using the finest lambswool. A limited edition of 100 throws, I will be donating £50 from each sale to the Trust’s Trevose Head Campaign – in total £5,000 – sufficient to look after the entire coastal area around the headland for one year.

They come in four colourways, each of which represents a different aspect of what I love most about Trevose Head. There is a green throw to represent the headland, an ochre yellow one for the surrounding beaches, a Cornish blue for the wild Cornish sea, and a grey to represent the rocks and archaeology on the headland.

The design itself is elemental – evoking an area of Cornwall which is constantly being bent, folded and moved and renewed by the wind and the sea.

Walk anywhere along the coastal path at Trevose and you will see the same rippled, bent, twisted and bowed shapes in this windswept and sea torn environment.

On a winter’s day it can tear you from the path, wind whistling, rain lashing. On a summer’s day you will not recognise that you are in the same place, sky larks sing overhead, the waves gently break, the sand is golden as the sun and the warmth is as hypnotic to people as it is to the bees.

These throws are a perfect reminder of all of this for anyone who loves Cornwall, especially the North Cornwall rugged coast around the Padstow area.

I have arranged with the South West Regional National Trust to pay my donations directly to them on a periodic basis. You can see how my campaign is going by visiting my Just Giving page at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/madeleine-jude
