Some places call to you and you have to return again and again and some are so special that they beg you to stay and never leave. Fell Garth II is a collection of 19 pieces shot at our homestead, Fell Garth, in the stunning Lake District of Northern England. We invite you to join us in the Cumbrian Fells for some knitting pleasure from a host of talented designers ready to inspire with designs in 5 of our yarns.

Mirehouse

Mirehouse is a feminine piece full of all the details that make for a wardrobe essential. Fitted sleeves end with a double length cuff to turn over for visual interest and comfort. Designed to be a worn with 5-8 cm (2-3 in) of positive ease, this sweater is worked without waist shaping, but the thoughtful placement of the gentle textured stitches creates a flattering line to the overall look. Worked in pieces before seaming, this sweater has all the structure we need to flatter whilst still leaving it versatile enough for layering over a pretty dress or digging in the garden denims.
