So happy with The Molly Cardigan , hand knitted from our hand dyed Harvest Wool in so many natural colours, this original design in pure merino has taken hours of work, truly is slow fashion. From the farmers raising and shearing the sheep, sale of fleeces on the world market, transportation of fleeces to the spinning mill in India , growing and collecting of plant matter for dye pots, the winding of skeins, the hand dyeing of spun wool, hours of knitting, ball winding, stitching together and tidying up ends, and finally selecting and sewing on the vintage buttons!
Knitted in stocking stitch with free hand colour work in simple stripes and spots, the hem and cuffs are in 2 x 2 rib and the neckline and front edge have been finished in crochet and ( I’ve been wanting to do this for quite some time) sew on a collection of mismatching vintage buttons.
This cardigan is vintage inspired and sits just below the waist on the top of the hips, nothing like pure merino wool to keep you warm.
