It’s always an exciting day when the yarn arrives and the machines start knitting up our new collection. So it was with baited breath that I set off this morning to the mill, having heard that the yarn had arrived and the machines were up and running. Although I can’t share everything right now, as most of it is still being knitted, here is a glimpse of some of the going’s on in the mill at the moment.
All the garments you see below are from our AW16 Collection and at this stage they are straight off the machines and awaiting the finishing process. All our products are knitted in a small ,family run, mill in the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders. Some of the beautifully bright hues threaded up to the machine ready to knit some new styles from the AW16 accessory collection.Below: One of my favourite styles, the classic cable beanie. These colours below are knitted for a Japanese stockist of ours. Mustard is the new black! You heard it here first!Every season we order several hundred Kilograms of yarn which the mill sort out and put in the yarn store ready to be knitted up into lovely cashmere accessories!
