BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Thursday, 2 February 2017
For 10 years, Beneath the Rowan Tree has offered dyed-to-order playsilks, silk toys and canopies in a rainbow of colours and over 50 distinctive colorways for open ended imaginative play.

This week, we discontinued these items in the shop.
It has not been an easy decision, but costs continue to rise and the rising costs combined with importing silk to Canada (weak dollar, high duty)  have made it impossible to earn a living wage dyeing and selling these products as we have done for a decade. It is time for a new approach.
We will be offering a variety of our most popular silk items and colorways on a seasonal, ready to ship, limited stock basis.  We will also offer one of a kind Motif playsilks, hand painted silks as well as pillowcases and other hand dyed home goods.  And lots more felting!

I'm a dyer at heart, so there will be lots of colourful things!

If you are interested in a bulk silk order, wholesale, or hosting a co-op with a group, I am happy to work out details to dye up your playsilk order. I'm not quitting dyeing... I just cannot continue to sell on a single piece basis. Drop me a line at

Please don't be a stranger! Check the shop often for new items and unique silks.
I will announce stockings on Facebook ( and Instagram (
Your years of support are so deeply appreciated~ what a privilege to be part of so many years of play ~ and we look forward to continuing to serve you with original, creative, natural items for home and play! ♥
