Tuesday 22nd September was the Autumn Equinox – where the day and night were of equal length and therefore, marked the first day of Autumn. In this blog post we’re highlighting our top Autumnal picks for the new season!
We knit with a variety of yarn in the workshop, ranging from lambswool and merino, to acrylic and Shetland grade wool.
As it’s Shetland Wool Week, we’re taking a closer look at the yarn produced by the hardy wee sheep from the Shetland Islands of Scotland.
In Portobello, Edinburgh you’ll find one of our stockists – 239 The High Street, owned by the lovely John Paul!
We’ve been having a chat with him to find out a little bit more about his shop, a speciality Harris Tweed Authority stockist!
Located in Thurso, along the North Coast 500 route is the Coo’s Tail Gallery, who stock a wonderful selection of our Wonky Woolies! We’ve just sent another big box of knitwear up to the most northerly town on mainland Scotland. Read a wee bit more about it here…
We are off to a few of the many highland games that are being held across the country this summer. A tradition which dates back hundreds of years, the games are a celebration of our Scottish culture and heritage.
In September 2014 we were selected to produce an exclusive collection for the National Trust of Scotland. The design collective comprised of 9 independent makers. From textiles to silver work, pottery and wood, the group was varied and full of ideas.
Judith Glue is well known in the knitwear world, having been in business since she was 18 years old. When we met Judith at Scotland’s Spring Trade Fair we were really excited to be asked to create a set of bespoke bobble hats for her brand.
We were delighted when Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon asked us to create a hat for Princess Charlotte. Being a gift from Scotland, we felt a unique tartan design would be fitting for the occasion.
