The Details

A sumptuous 4ply knit, with a stunning float stitch, which subtly echoes the traditional fairisle design. 

Made from 100% British wool in an un-dyed natural shade of ecru.

Each piece is 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. 

The jumper is finished with organic cotton care labels and folded into an organic cotton bag.

England's finest wool

Crafted from 100% British Bluefaced Leicester wool, which yields the finest fleeces of any British breed. A micron of 25 – which has a wonderful lustre, strength and drape.

Sourced exclusively from a collective of farms in the north west of England, the wool heads to the mill Laxtons in Yorkshire. It is here that this great British mill spins the wool into yarn using just water and organic detergents.  From field to fibre in 150 miles.
