Jacquard Knitwear


Jacquard Knit Is A Process Where The Pattern Is Incorporated Into The Weave Rather Than  Printed Or Dyed On.

Jacquard refers to the loom used which allows the shuttle to run between the threads like a ship passing through a tunnel to leave what look like a seamless and integrated effect. 

The Jacquard machine is a device fitted to a power loom that simplifies the process of manufacturing textiles with such complex patterns as brocade, damask and matelassé. It was invented by Joseph Marie Jacquard in 1804.

Through the process of using a Jacquard loom you can produce anything from the sweetest of pretty florals to the craziest of Christmas jumpers!


Folk Art Cardigan


Folk Art, Novelty, Wholesome, Fairy Tale... These Are Just A Few Of The Words To Sum Up This Yummy Cardigan.

Circa 1970 it's based the deign hankers back to the 1930's (or way back to when it was first seen in the 1820's) with a leg of mutton sleeve or as the French call it gigot sleeve - neither of which sum of the beauty of this sleeve. Beautifully knitted and finished with a knitted lace edge. 

Hand knitted and then embroidered with colourful caricatures that blissfully remind me of a love story - two young people soon to be sent of into the world with the love, care and knitwear of a grandparent... A romantic notion perhaps but with such a romantic cardigan base its not hard to imagine.
