Ella - Orkney Island Hand Knit - Bluebell
We are so lucky to be able to offer you these unique home made knits from the Orkney Islands off the top of mainland Scotland. They are made from a blended yarn of raw silk and Lambswool and are knitted by a team of three women who work in their own homes on the outer Orkney Islands, using domestic hand working knitting machines. Each garment has to travel 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 quality, the depth of colour and the relaxed quirky designs. We are very privileged to be their only international stockist.
These are quirky and fun. Each style is available in one size. This style is an easy pullover with long sleeves, a split semi cowl neck in contrasting stitch and a front pocket. Using all naturals dyes these will last a lifetime and don't pill.
