Calypso Tunic - Orkney Hand Knit - Loam/Blackkthorn/Ivory
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 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 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 is a gorgeous one-size-fits-all, relaxed, dropped shoulder, boxy pull over. Lightweight but warm, it is ideal for an extra layer, perfect all year round. It features a buttoned on contrasting pocket - the shell buttons have been hand dyed to match the yarn, and a rolled trim. They are very 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!
