I have a new found love for these mohair Ann Arundell jumpers.

I have found some on eBay and I have also bought some directly from the etsy website. They are ‘keepers’, they aren’t ‘in’ fashion and they certainly aren’t ‘out’ of fashion - they are a slightly quirky classic.

I not only loe the design but I’m also loving mohair, it is so warm. I used to find tricky and scratchy and slightly uncomfortable - i’n not sure what changed me obviously!

Mohair is usually a yarn made from the hair of the Angora goat. It is durable and resilient, mohair is notable for its high luster and sheen which has helped gain it the nickname the "Diamond Fiber", and is often used in fiber blends to add these qualities to a textile.

Mohair can by dyed exceptionally well. Mohair is warm in winter as it has excellent insulating properties, while remaining cool in summer due to its moisture wicking properties. It is durable, naturally elastic, flame resistant and crease resistant. It is considered to be a luxury fiber, like cashmere, angora and silk. It is usually more expensive than most wool that is produced by sheep - which is possibly why the ‘vintage’ Ann Arundell that I have found on eBay are in impeccable condition!

I am so excited to have found Ann Arundel Knitwear. It is hand knitted in the united Kingdom and is amazing. This is my first piece and I have subsequently found a great elephant piece on eBay and I have commissioned a lion jumper.

This is hand knitting at its best, not only re the designs quirky and fantastic quality but the mohair yarn is dare I say delicious! absolute quality.

An absolute must, is to look at the animal jumper gallery on their website. For me its like being a child in a candy store all over again. Goals to knit like this would be amazing but in the short term I cant help but dream…
