The Eve box style is the perfect handknit for a traditional statement with a fashion edge.
This Sweater is handknit in 70% merino wool and 30% mohair.
Mohair is an incredibly light and soft yarn with great strength and a very delicate hint of shine.
The thermal warmth of mohair is magical as it adjusts to your temperature needs. Merino sheep have fine fleece that makes a soft yet study yarn. This is a great choice for someone who loves natural fibres that are soft enough for bare skin!
Merino and mohair both have natural stretch which creates a neater contour or fit.
A natural and sustainable choice that will wear for years.
Momer Eve is designed and handknit in our favourite stitches, namely the Donegal blackberry stitch, wishbone cable and Irish moss stitches.
The blackberry stitch cannot be made by machine.

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.
