Our Woodlands Sweater is an original hand knitted sweater from 100% naturally dyed merino wool.
It has been knitted by hand in Northern NSW at home on the old farm.
It is an extra thick chunky sweater designed by us. This sweater has been knitted with 2 strands of Harvest Wool making it extra thick and warm.
Sugar Cane has been chosen as the main body colour with Slate, Orchid, Red and Marigold used as the feature colours.
The sensitive colour combination has been achieved from using natural dyes, madder, indigo, pomegranate rinds, turmeric and borage.

Please treat your hand made garment gently.
Please note that initially there may be some plant and colour residue form our naturally dyed wool.
Your first wash will probably leach some colour and plant residue, after the first one or two washes residue should have washed out.
If this bothers you please wash before wearing, or take care just to wear darker clothing underneath your handmade garment until it has been washed out.
Please gently hand wash in cool water with wool wash, after hand washing and rinsing you may spin your woollen garment in the machine on a GENTLE SPIN.
Dry inside out in the shade.
Thank you for treading lightly and supporting slow hand made, natural fashion.
