Hello Summer Shawl by Heike Gittins

"A symmetrical triangular shawl knitted on the bias, increasing outwards from one point for a long flat triangle. Inspired by walks on balmy summer evenings through flowery meadows on the farm, show casing beautiful Stein Fine Wool by The Little Grey Sheep. This shawl wraps you into a halo like hug keeping a chill off your shoulders" - Heike

Heike a very talented designer and her books include The Little Book of Shawls, Eight cosy hugs for strong women, cowritten with Claudia Freiss. Find the pattern on her website, Made with Loops

British Hand Dyed Stein Fine Wool

British Yarn from our own farm on the Surrey Hampshire borders. We have developed our own range of fine 100% wool yarns, from our pedigree flock of gotland, shetland and merino sheep. Raised on conservation meadows, and shorn by Susie at Christmas for the best quality fibre. Washed in Yorkshire and spun in a traditional mill in Devon, then back to the farm for dyeing. This must be one of the finest lustre fibre now in the UK

Your yarn will be dyed for you, your order will be shipped 14 days from placing your order.

The pattern is available directly from Heike at
