Quernstone Letty Gentian Orkney Hand Knit

Letty - Orkney Island Hand Knit - Gentian/Cerise

Regular price $299.00 Sale

 

 

Made from Raw Silk and Lambswool these are knitted in the Orkney Islands off the top of mainland Scotland. It is a tiny cottage industry and they are produced by a team of three knitters in their own homes using domestic hand working knitting machines. Each garment travels between each knitter - by boat - to be finished.

I love the vision this conjures and I love the finished product - the yarn (light but warm), the depth of colour and the relaxed design. They are quirky and fun. Each style is available in one size. Incredible colour combinations and wonderful attention to detail. This style is a short cardigan/jacket with a drop shoulder, double hand dyed shell buttons (to match the yarn) with contrasting cuffs and inner back hem band.
