ragamuffin loves...a felt flower or three!

Oh my goodness...it's almost July, where has the time gone!!! We've had lots of stock come and then disappear just as quickly but one thing we've managed to keep stocked up are our gorgeous felt flowers!
There is no end to the fun you can have with these soft and colourful accessories...wear them to the side of the neck to frame the face...
To hitch up a skirt...
In addition to other gorgeous felt creations...
Or go totally bonkers and wear loads in your hair at once! We'll keep ordering these all summer...holler if you fancy one! For the flowers pictured prices start at £12.50, each are 100% handmade and 100% unique!

We'll do a proper photo shoot soon so that you can see all the collections in their full glory but, for now, here is a taster for what you can expect from ragamuffin this spring!

ragamuffin loves...time to make & do!

Well winter has just whizzed by for us! We've been really fortunate not to have had the dreadful weather that has been plaguing the Southern half of the country and have been busy in the shops making lots of fabulous new things for the coming season!

Whilst the gals in the Edinburgh and Isle of Skye stores have been knitting like crazy making cowls, headbands & beanie hats like the ones pictured; our studio team have been making quite a stock of our own label, Angels Don't Trudge, jackets.

Joining the wool plaid Lottie and Katie and the Shetland tweed Myrtle are the fabulous, boiled wool Tilly jackets!

Oversized, soft and slouchy, these jackets add some fun and colour to early spring days, with enough room inside to layer up whilst the weather is still chilly!

ragamuffin loves...partying (again!)


Thanks so much to everyone who came to see us during our five day shopping event on Isle of Skye last week! We had a fantastic week and really enjoyed seeing everyone and appreciate the effort people made to travel to us this chilly November! We're open every day until Christmas on Skye - if you didn't make it for the party there are still lots of cosy woollies, gorgeous party outfits and great gifts to snap up in time for the festive season!

It's party time at our Edinburgh shop tomorrow! We always like to festoon the shop windows - it gets dark so quickly now and it's lovely to have the twinkly lights on inviting people in! This year we are super pleased with how the shop looks and had our photographer, Paul, take some photos to show off our efforts!

So if you are in the Edinburgh area tomorrow, please join us between 12pm - 7pm for a glass of bubbly, some festive fun & treats, special promotions and 10% off on purchases of £40 or more!




Tempted? We really hope to see you!
