Orkney Island Hand Knit Calypso Cerise
Made from Raw Silk and Lambswool these are made in the Orkney Islands off the top of mainland Scotland. They are produced by a team of 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.
These are quirky and fun. Each style is available in one size. Drop shoulder relaxed fit. Incredible colour combinations and wonderful attention to detail. Naturals dyes and hand dyed shell buttons.
