Warm yet still light, the HEIRLOOM FUNNEL is a beautiful chunky knit that’s enveloping yet refined all at once.
Made from the finest lamb's wool that's spun in Scotland, the boxier shape makes this the perfect luxury knit to pair with skirts or and tucked into trousers, without excessive bulk.
Knitted in a chunky 1.5 gauge, with 5ply wool yarn and fully-fashioned - where each piece of the jumper is knitted separately and then linked together by hand and hand-finished. This means that not only is this knit of the highest quality, but that also there is minimal, often zero, waste.
A beautiful creamy ecru shade that is the natural colour of the wool. Nature really does know how to do colour.
Not all wool is equal
This jumper is made from 100% Superfine Lamb's Wool that is sourced from a special breed of sheep in South Africa.
With a fibre diameter of c. 18.5 microns, it is one of the world's finest and softest Lambs Wools. (Most average 21-24 microns). We have knitted this style into a luxurious 1.5 gauge jumper.
The wool arrives in Scotland by boat where it is spun and dyed on the banks of Loch Leven in Kinross by Todd & Duncan, one of the finest Scottish Mills which has been spinning yarn for 150+ years.
85% of the dyes used by Todd & Duncan are organic and the water used for washing and dyeing the wool is cleaned and purified before being returned to Loch Leven to be used again. It is a pioneering and cyclical process that helps to protect the environment in and around the loch.
The yarn is then sent to our London factory where our team knit and hand-finish each jumper. Due to the fully-fashioned knitting technique we employ and as we produce in small batches, there is very little yarn wastage.
The jumpers are finished with organic cotton care labels and sealed in organic cotton bags.
