Our Southern Star Jumper is a one of kind hand knit from 100% naturally dyed merino. It has been knitted and designed here at home on the old dairy farm in Northern NSW. This pullover is made entirely from our naturally dyed Harvest Wool. The sensitive colour combination has been achieved from using natural dyes from indigo, turmeric and pomegranate rinds, marigolds, madder and alkanet. The star pattern is inspired by the great knit wear designer Kaffe Fasset and inspiration from icelandic fair isle patterns is always present in most of our hand knits. Each piece has it’s own unique colour combination and pattern, no two jumpers are the same.

Please treat your hand made garment gently.
Please note that initially there may be some plant and colour residue form our naturally dyed wool.
Your first wash will probably leach some colour and plant residue, after the first one or two washes residue should have washed out.
If this bothers you please wash before wearing, or take care just to wear darker clothing underneath your handmade garment until it has been washed out.
Please gently hand wash in cool water with wool wash, after hand washing and rinsing you may spin your wooden garment in the machine on a GENTLE SPIN.
Dry inside out in the shade.
Thank you for treading lightly and supporting slow hand made, natural fashion.
