The mallows are out - over here in Cape Town they are widely regarded as roadside weeds, but for me an enduring image of Cecily Mary Barker's Mallow Faerie always lingers. The word 'mauve' is incidentally derived from the French word for 'mallow' - a dusky, warmish purple-pink mauve.
A recent colour request made me think that this might be a fresh neutral colour perfect for our spring and summer - as it pairs so readily and well with many other colours in this update - thank you Alette for your idea!
I am Mallow; here sit I
Watching all the passers-by.
Though my leaves are torn and tattered,
See, my seeds are fairy cheeses.
Care Instructions: For long term fibre and colour care a gentle, PH neutral detergent (preferably natural/organic) and cold water rinse is recommended. Refrain from excessive wringing. Dry flat, avoiding prolonged exposure to harsh sunlight.
