The mohair adds to the natural drape of the knit fabric.
The yarn of choice for many top designers this season.
Each wrap consists of 60,000 stitches or more all hand loomed here.
Each piece is cast on and cast off by hand with a double thickness of yarn and after knitting is given a light washing to increase the softness and drape.
The mohair blend brings lightness, lustre and colour depth to each piece.
What is a handloomed knit?
Handloomed means a hand operated knitting machine is used, no electricity needed!
Each stitch is cast on individually, each line or row is made by moving a knitting ‘carriage’ across a bed of needles. The eye must watch carefully while the hands help control the yarn tension.
It is very enjoyable work when everything is going good!

How to care for me
Maybe you’ve never owned one of me before?
Here’s my experience so far;
I’d prefer not to be stuck in that dark press but when I must go in there just roll me up loosely first.
I don’t need much washing although my Italian cousins say that I’m a gorgeous natural thing and washing improves me!
When washing make it no higher than 30 degrees and please only a wool recommended detergent. Squeeze all the water out after handwashing me, even roll me up in a towel to do this! Dry me flat on my back.
Keep direct sunlight away from my cables!
Edel and many of her long-term clients machine wash my friends. Hopefully they never put them in the drum at higher than 30 degrees or with nasty biological stuff!!!! The horror.
I’m terrified of the tumble dryer, please never do that to me.
Through Summer if you don’t need me (I hope you will), store me in an airtight zip bag please and I’ll get a rest with no disruption. I hope to spend a lifetime with you, but if you want to give me to a friend or send me to a charity store for a break that’s OK.
My wool is so healthy to wear and antibacterial, plus you’ll be living off the compliments.
