How delighted we are to offer you these quirky, fun, homemade knits from the wild and windy Orkney Islands off the top of mainland Scotland. This cottage industry is based around a small team of knitters who make the garments in their own homes using a naturally dyed, raw silk and lamb's wool blended yarn. Each piece has to travel (by boat) to each of the three knitters to be finished and then once finished they make their way to us. We are very privileged to offer these to you, we are their only international stockist.

This 3/4 sleeve jacket is fun and ideal for an extra layer, perfect all year round. One size fits all - it is a medium length, dropped shoulder boxy style, with one contrasting pocket at the front. Again, another contrasting colour is used at the cuffs and inner back hem along with double shell buttons that have been hand dyed to match the yarn running down the front. These are very special and are long lasting and they do not pill.

These pieces exhibit everything that Berrima's Overflow loves - natural, creative, sustainable, colourful, happy, long lasting, real clothing! The slowest fashion we can find!

As these are handmade each piece my differ in sizing - please contact us if you would like any help.
