Aretha Stripe Tunic - Orkney Hand Knit - Plum/Blossom

Regular price $325.00 Sale

How delighted we are to offer you these quirky, fun, home made knits from the wild and windy Orkney Islands off the top of mainland Scotland. This 3/4 sleeve jacket is ideal for an extra layer and is perfect all year round. One size fits all - it is a shorter length sweater, with a dropped shoulder boxy style, with a striped panel on the front, contrasting cuffs and inner back hem. These are very special and are long lasting. They do not pill.

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 lambs wool blended yarn. Each piece has to travel, by boat, to each of the three knitters to be finished. The pieces are then shipped to Berrima. We are very privileged to offer these to you; we are their only international stockist.
