Sorry my shop is closed; I am still in beautiful southern Scotland, where I have been sharing these long months of lockdown with my father, and mourning the death of my mother.
Even when I return home, it will take me a while to pick up from where I just dropped everything at the start of the year. Hopefully I should have some new stock ready to re-open my online shop in August 2020.
For those days when it's really cold, and you need your hands fully covered, I have knitted these cosy mittens using British Falklands wool. This lovely natural dark brown is not achieved with dyes; it is the natural colour of the soft wool from which they are made.
I have knitted them with a ribbed cuff to slip under your coat to keep the draughts out. This is the simplest plain design, with no fuss or frills. Whether making snowballs or carrying shopping, these will keep your fingers warm. The sweet little "Roses Workshop" brand label is laser etched faux leather.
They measure 25cm (10 inches) long including the cuff, 20cm (8 inches) for the hand section, 10cm (4 inches) across the palm. The knit is stretchy enough to fit most average adult hands, I would call these medium to large.
These beautiful mittens will be wrapped in tissue and tied up with a ribbon, ready for giving or as a treat for yourself. To get your lovely purchase to you quickly and safely I use Royal Mail tracked / signed for services. Save on postage for two or more items bought from my shop at the same time.
Hand-washing is best to keep pure wool in top condition, but if your machine has a cool/ gentle/ wool setting then that works too! Never put wool into a tumble drier, as it will shrink and felt.
My range of gloves have proved very popular this year, and are now knit to order. Please allow 1-2 weeks before shipping. I will let you know when your order is ready.
I love working with the many different wools produced here from British breeds of sheep. Falkland Island wool comes from mixed breeds based on Corriedale, Polwarth and Merino sheep. This blended wool is pale beige and dark brown, both beautifully soft.
Due to the climate, there are no flystrike problems on the Falklands, allowing for much higher animal welfare than Merino from other countries; free from mulseing and external pesticides.
