I had the joy a couple of weeks' ago to be up in the beautiful Scottish borders for the wedding of our niece and while there I had time to explore some of the lovely woollens crafted by local knitting manufacturers. So now I have a sample of a sampler scarf and driving gloves to show you which will be available for shipping in August. We shall be selling a limited quantity only of these items as they are truly special. They are crafted from the softest, finest 100% Scottish lambswool - the main colour is ecru (or pale porridge as we say). Knitted in the round so that pattern goes all the way around without a wrong side or irritating seam they are 8 inches (20cm) wide and a snug 72 inches (180) long. There is an option to have them plain or with a generous hand-crafted tassel finish which incorporates all the shades of wool used in the scarf. These are just perfect for autumn gifts - or even for yourself! The cost for the scarf is £50 with tassels or £47.50 without, the driving gloves are £25. Please email me for more details.
