Traditional Fair Isle Crewneck Sweater in Lichen
Designed by Judith and made in Orkney by one of her experienced knitters based in their own home, this traditional fair isle patterned crewneck sweater is made with soft Scottish lambswool with a mix of Italian boucle and mousse yarn with a touch of cashmere. This crewneck sweater is suitable for men and women and has a ribbed stripey neckline, cuffs and welt. It is soft and lightweight to wear but very warm.
The colours have been influenced by the stones and pebbles on the beach in Rackwick in the picture shown here.
Judith uses a fully fashioned method for making her collection and each piece is shaped by hand on a small domestic knitting machine then sewn together and finished by hand. When you buy a garment from Judith you are truly buying an item that has been painstakingly made in a home and not mass manufactured. Judith's designs reflect the colours and textures of her homeland, Orkney.
As Judith only has a small local team of six knitters and finishers, it is very difficult to keep the full Orkney knitwear collection in stock. If we cannot complete your order straight away, we will contact you by e mail and let you know how long it will be to make up your order. Normally there is a lead time of around 3-4 weeks depending how busy we are at the time.
