We’ve always used natural yarns to knit our sweaters, but this year we’ve harnessed the power of plants to add natural colour to our lambswool Basket Weave Sweaters.
Made from the roots of the rose madder plant, madder dye yields a range of pretty pink-toned shades, including this pale hue.
Each sweater is individually dyed by hand using traditional techniques, a much more sustainable alternative to using modern, synthetic dyes and processes. For this reason, there may be slight variations in colour, however we think this makes each one even more special.
The Basket Weave Sweater is a slightly cropped style with a slash neck. Available in three sizes, based on UK womenswear sizing:
Small – fits UK size 8-10 / Medium – fits UK size 10-12 / Large – fits UK size 12-14. See Sizing tab for measurements.
A little shrinkage can occur during the dyeing process, we suggest sizing up, particularly if you prefer a roomier fit.
100% lambswool, knitted in Portugal and dyed by hand in London.
Please note: Our natural dyed sweaters need a little extra love and attention when washing. Please read our tips in the Care tab!
We recommend washing your Basket Weave Sweater by hand, using a mild wool detergent and cool water, and dry flat, away from direct heat.
Please note: due to the natural dyeing process, it’s normal for some of the dye to be released upon the first wash. For this reason we suggest washing your sweater separately from other garments to avoid colour run.
