Duet - Orkney Island Hand Knit - Plum/Cerise/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.
These jackets are gorgeous and the colours are amazing. Offered in one size fits all they are a dropped shoulder long jacket with hand dyed shell buttons to match the yarn, double pockets and trim in contrasting colours. 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!
