With a 1970’s cardigan length this look can take you from Monday to Sunday.
Full of Aran knit story too this handknit recently designed by Edel is on her own wish list.
A little of the knitting…
The stitches reflect love in many ways. The zig zag lines of relationship ups and downs, the family tree for a long life and wait for it... “with many sons?”
Many four stitch cables too because this is Aran and Aran loves cables.
Why Momer? The blend of mohair and merino is lighter that most wool on its own. The fibers complement each other and make for beautiful drape. Added to this is a thermal warmth that works with your own temperature.
Currently the design has just one large button at the top with a Bee on it!
Please request a full set of olive wood buttons if preferred or tweed buttons at no extra charge.
(we are still figuring that part out!)

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.
