The Story
Riverport, a tiny river-front community on the aptly named Fairhaven Peninsula along the LaHave in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, maintains its rich Maritime traditions and is minutes away from the LaHave Cable Ferry ~ all-in-all, an apt namesake for this cabled collection. When a cold nor’easter blows, it’s tucked up warm you’ll want to be! And what better way than with lusciously cabled knitwear.
