Traditional Fair Isle Crewneck Sweater in Slate
Designed by Judith and made in Orkney by one of her experienced knitters based in their own home, this traditional fair isle pattern crewneck sweater is made with Scottish lambswool. This crewneck sweater is suitable for men and women and has stripey ribbed neckline, cuffs and bottom welt. Its soft and lightweight but still very warm to wear.
The colours reflect the many stone built walls that you find all over Orkney
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.
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.
