Introducing Three New Lambswool Scarves
This season we’re introducing some new scarves to our existing range. To start with, let me introduce these three:
All of them are made with the usual super soft, quality lambswool that we prefer to use. It’s spun and dyed in Scotland using GOTS approved dyes, and then each scarf is individually knitted in the studio, and hand finished to ensure the best quality and softness. The scarves are all 30x 192cm approximately, with a jacquard pattern all over them and they're luxuriously soft.
The new Talla scarf is in a bold bright blue and light grey- great for making more of a statement, and brightening up your outfit on grey days. Again, it is suitable for men and women, and the length allows for some good scarf draping and tying!
The new Tweed Scarf is knitted in two shades of grey- so it’s easy to wear and goes with everything. The perfect unisex scarf, it can be smart or casual, and is really soft and cosy. There is also a new matching hat to go with it if you like to match your accessories.
The Esk Scarf, is a new version of the Ettrick Scarf, still a favourite. The Esk Scarf is a great unisex style, with three shades of blue that are easy to wear and will go with most coats!
All these scarves are named after rivers in the Scottish Borders, rivers I spend time walking beside, or have grown up near. Their names are part of my daily life, particularly the Tweed, which Stitch and I often walk beside and flows past Galashiels, and joins up all the towns I have personal connections with in the Borders.
As Collingwood-Norris grows, it’s difficult for me to make everything myself. So I’m excited to now have a bit of help from Cara, a textile student at Heriot Watt here is Galashiels, who is helping me around her studies. You can now look out for labels with “made by Cara” on them, as she will be knitting some of these new scarves. Cara is specialising in knitwear at university, and has a strong interest in colour, so she’s a great fit here.
