Original Hand Knits Accordian
- ▼How we made it
- World class is the goal. And zero-waste. So we hand knit real slow in tiny batches of around 10 pieces. We only use Italian Sesia 100% Merino wool. Only Sesia has the sustainability and quality levels we want. Everything we do is an iconic design classic. Confidently simple. Designs born from the heart (and soul) of chilly Northern England. And only ever hand knitted - slow and heavy - in the UK. No two are exactly the same. And each piece is individually hand numbered in the order it is made. You'll love it even more as it ages and becomes yours. Because it's designed and made to wear in - not out.
- ◄Size and shape
- AWR Jumpers are our own unique gender-neutral shape.
A SMALL jumper is a man's 40cm to 46cm chest (16 inches to 18 inches) and a woman's UK size 8 to 12.
A MEDIUM jumper is a man's 46cm to 50cm chest (18 inches to 20 inches) and a woman's UK size 12 to 14.
A LARGE jumper is a man's 50cm to 56cm chest (20 inches to 22 inches) and a woman's UK size 14 to 18.
So here's to sharing.
Scarves are 250cm (8 feet 2 inches) long and 30cm (12 inches) wide.
Half-scarves are 125cm (4 feet 1 inch) long and 30cm (12 inches) wide.
Huge and heavy. Jumpers weigh up to 3kg and scarves weigh up to 1.5kg. We are 'hand knits that hug you' - so everything is deliberately oversized. Sleeves, body and scarves are all bigger and longer than you'd expect.
- Cool hand wash very rarely, if ever. 100% Merino is antimicrobial. Odours disappear. So no-washing saves you time, money - and the planet. Hand-wring lightly and dry flat if you do wash, using the eco-wash that we give you. Tightly knitted, twisted 100% Merino wool pills a little. When it does, comb your hand knit with the solid cedarwood fibre-comb that we also give you. It's calming. Like stroking a pet. And your natural fragrance bag, also bundled with your hand knit, will keep thing smelling lovely for months.
- Nothing you own has a cooler label than this. We commissioned renowned Finnish artist Erica Akerlund with a one-word brief. 'OFFNESS'. Erica has worked for some of the biggest and best known brands in the world. And Erica's unpredictably and brilliantly bonkers brain has imagined and illustrated a wonderfully weird 'world on pause'. A world of unique people doing unique things with their downtime. Then we wove our Limited Edition label from Erica's artwork.
