At C&R we love to support all things British. We also love to keep things handcrafted where possible. Because of this, every Winter we work alongside Wendy Keith’s BRITISH KNITTERS to create a beautiful hand knitted collection. Wendy works with an army of knitters dotted around the country all of whom work from home, her company has had the Soil Association’s organic approval and she even has the Royal Warrant to knit His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales’ shooting stockings!
We also have an incredibly cosy trawlerman’s beanie with the feminine touch of a bow on the top.
These pieces are very special, all made by hand, with care and attention. Cabbages & Roses are proud to support a craft that has been under threat since the introduction of mass production and we hope it will continue for many centuries to come.
Cabbages & Roses are delighted to introduce you to our lovely handmade wellington boot socks, also made by Wendy Keith, by making them our monthly giveaway. As with the scarf, sweater and beanie each pair is knitted in England with organic wool from sheep reared on H.R.H Prince of Wales’ Duchy Farms.
To enter please leave a comment below telling us what you most love about Cabbages & Roses and you might win your own pair. Please enter by 31st October 2010, winner will be randomly selected, and the giveaway is open to all our friends around the world.
