A studio speciality circle knit in alight but strong merino spun in Donegal.
This merino skirt is knit 'in the round' and invisibly grafted do there is no seam.
Knit this way the merino gives just enough stretch but will not get 'out-of-shape' with wear. One of the most comfortable and sought after things we make.
It looks great styled with skirts or jackets too.
If you've another colour in mind please enquire, we carry a lot of merinos but cannot stock them all. The same goes for size and length, we are happy to discuss. *All yarns are fine, like the Aimsir wraps, swatches may look thicker.(request a swatch by post too if very interested)

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.
