Làn-mara is the Gaelic word for tidal. Dutch weaver Severine Amsing designed and produced together with Knockvologan Studies and Isle of Mull Weavers a blanket based on tidal stream.

The blankets are woven with deep brown and grey wool from the local Hebridean sheep - on a 75 year old loom, driven by wind power - revealing the ingenious wave pattern. The length of the blankets is alike one of the tidal ranges on the day of weaving at Ardalanish on 26 and 27 March 2018. The width is 160 cm. Làn-mara is made of 100% pure Hebridean new wool.
