Part of the Fell Garth Collection by Emma Wright for The Fibre Co., Helga is a dress for people who share our love for pockets in which to keep little souvenirs and the odd sweet or two. The dress (which can also be worn as a tunic) is worked flat and pieced together.

The Fell Garth Collection is born from a love for beautiful handmades with a practical purpose. Each piece is worked in Cumbria or Cumbria Fingering yarns that were created to be evocative of the mood, light and places that characterise the North West of the UK. All of the pieces in the collection feature rich textures from cables and twisted stitches.

The sample for Helga is shown in the Derwentwater colourway with Helvellyn used for the contrasting accents.
