To take a break from painting (usually in front of a lovely log fire in the evenings) I like to play with colour in a different way. I’ve crocheted all my life and enjoy creating one – off pieces using luxury yarns of various types. I use cashmere, alpaca, merino wool, linen and mohair, for example for the luxurious wraps and scarves. The seaweed scarves are made with a wool and premium acrylic blend. Please note that there is only one of each item available.
The seaweed scarves
are made of a lovely wool and premium acrylic blend. They are £25.00 plus p&p each and measure approx 165 cm long.
stained glass alpaca wrap
This is a sumptuous 100% alpaca wool wrap which is inspired by one of the windows at St Davids Cathedral. The wrap is approx 70 cm wide and 250 cm long, so it’s of a very generous size. This wrap is £245 plus p&p
Merino wrap – pastel shades
This wrap is made of a slightly thicker merino wool thread than the stained glass wrap. It’s approx 40 cm by 220 cm and it costs £85 plus p&p
Snuggly lopi coat
This oversized coat is made up of giant granny squares in a natural palette in lopi yarn.
Lopi wool is from sheep bred in Iceland. These hardy sheep have fleeces with two layers of wool: the wet-resistant outer coat consists of long, coarse fibres, and then there is an insulating layer of short and soft fibres. They are processed together to produce a yarn which is usually unspun. There’s nothing more warm and snuggly for a cold day. The coat is unlined. It is designed for sizes 16 to 22 and the three giant wooden buttons can be moved if wished. The coat costs £250 plus postage.
alpaca lace wrap
this wrap is made of fine alpaca wool in pastel shades. It measures approx 40 cm x 210 cm and costs £145 plus p&p
