Despite spending about a third of our time at craft fairs and markets in July and August, we managed to add a few pieces to our steadily growing collections of Skye-made woollen products.
On the garment side our latest additions are a hooded poncho and fitted body warmer in our new brushed tweed.
Due to popular demand we are making the poncho quite a bit bigger than its predecessor. Laid out as a square, it measures about 4′ x 4′ (120cm x 120cm).
The hood is still lined with the same soft moleskin as before.
The new fitted body warmer comes in 4 standard sizes.
As the summer is drawing to a close, it makes a good addition to your wardrobe.
It combines the comfort and warmth of a gilet with the style of a fitted waistcoat and gives a flattering waistline.
If you are a keen sewer yourself and you are looking for a Skye tweed fabric for your next project, have a look at our two new brushed tweeds.
One of them is a dark green/grey and the other one a speckled grey. The tweed is 5′ (150cm) wide and we sell it in metre lengths.
We are just about to finish our next piece of tweed and should have it back from the finishers in about one month, so watch this space. The tweed is a vertical skip twill in five different colour ways and a bit of Andrea-quirky-mix at the end.
