We love a bit of Fairisle here at ragamuffin, especially now that it is getting chillier and the nights are drawing in! We have some beautiful pieces in stock at the moment. From Shetland Designer, we have gorgeous berets like the one pictured as well as fingerless mitts - these are real heirloom pieces that never date. We have beautiful fairisle mens sweaters from Jamiesons of Shetland and also from Harley of Peterhead - very cuddly! For the trendy amongst you, we have these fabulous fairisle gauntlets in clashing colours, from Gilbert Wilson. Knitted in a soft lambswool and gently felted, they are ridiculously cosy! For those wanting to relive the 80's in style we have magnificent fairisle legwarmers - again authentic, Shetland made - and some cool fairisle style headbands by Pachamama. Fairtrade and handknitted they even donate 10% of all profits to a children’s charity in Nepal where much of the knitwear is produced. We've got a warm glow just thinking of all these lovely woollies!
