Carousel - Orkney Hand Knit - Gentian/Ivory
Made from Raw Silk and Lambswool these are made in the Orkney Islands off the top of mainland Scotland. A small cottage industry where the garments 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.
These are quirky and fun. Each style is available in one size. This style is very generous - long and wide with the dropped shoulder. A very relaxed fit. Incredible colour combinations and wonderful attention to detail.
These will last a life time and they don't pill.
