Our Hill Billy Sweater is a one of a kind hand knitted sweater from 100% merino. It has been knitted entirely by hand here at home on the old dairy farm. It is one of our favourites, an extra thick chunky sweater inspired from an 1980’s Icelandic Lopi pattern. This sweater has been knitted with 2 strands of Harvest wool making it so thick and warm. Camomile has been used as the main body colour, Snow Gum and Plum as the feature colours. The sensitive colour combination has been achieved from using natural dyes, turmeric and pomegranate rind, madder and alkanet. Each sweater has it’s own unique colour combination and pattern, no two sweaters will ever be the same. After knitting this sweater has been hand washed in cool water.

Sure to keep you warm and become a well loved sweater.
