£28.00

Cosy fingerless mitts made with Somerset lambswool and dyed with homegrown Coreopsis Tinctoria flowers.

Clear
Sold By: Ria Burns

Description

Knitted in a bespoke Shetland-Romney lambswool yarn from a farm in Somerset, these fingerless mitts are knitted in an English rib stitch which is super soft on the inside and textured and hard wearing on the outside. The simple design has an opening for the thumb making them great for people that work with their hands but need to keep warm.

The yarn is dyed by hand by Ria using homegrown dye plants or food waste, and knitted on vintage hand powered knitting machines in her Bristol studio.

Available in three naturally dyed colours  – Coreopsis orange, Tansy yellow and Avocado peach.

The mitts are one size – 19cm long and 17cm circumference.

Due to the nature of natural dyeing, colours may vary slightly to the example shown.

About the Maker:

Ria Burns Knitwear aims to champion the natural hues and qualities of British wool, incorporating vibrant flashes of colour through hand dyeing with homegrown and foraged plants.

Inspired by the conflict between the natural and the man-made, this translates into a knitwear collection that is an antidote to fast fashion, designed for longevity and made to be cherished, looked after and passed on.

Ria is continually working on ways in which her pieces can be produced more sustainably and has a three point action plant to work from - local wool, local plants, local production.
