Testimonials

I fell in love with your hat in Martinborough last winter but was away for an extravagant escape so couldn’t justify it…it’s quietly waited in the wings of my desires since.
A good hat is a good friend, I’ll be sure to take it adventuring.
Many thanks for the lovely personal service, my hat feels warmer for it.

I saw your hats at Scout Dublin on my first day there (8 day trip around Ireland) and I so regretted not buying one! So I decided to buy online and am happy that I was able to design my own 🙂 Excited to wear the hat!
Thank you,

Hello Liadain,
I bought one of your lovely hats from the Irish  design shop in Dublin this summer when we were over visiting my husband’s cousins. I gave that hat to my sister for Christmas and she has worn it a lot, and several other family members like it so much that they asked me if they could have one too – also one is for me!

So I hope the colour combinations I have chosen prove as popular!

My hats arrived safely and look great! Thanks very much. Another brother in law is already asking for one for his birthday , so I expect I’ll be in touch again soon!

Hello- just to let you know my beautiful jumper arrived today . I absolutely love it .
Thank you very much .

Hi Liadain.
First of all,thank you so much !
My girlfriend absolutely loves it (hat).
And Here is the thing.
Actually I and my girlfriend weren’t sure if we keep this relationship after we leave Ireland because she is from Spain and I’m from Japan and we knew it’s going to be tough in the long time distance relationship .
But right after I gave her the present she asked me to keep in relationship even though it’s going to be a long distance relationship. (It turned out we both wanted to keep this relationship but we both were just scared to ask) and I’m sure the present was like one of the triggers to ask.
So Thanks again for lovely hat and card !

‘What a lovely idea to be able to pick your colours for the Bobble Hat from your merino wool colour range!! Soft and comfy to wear, keeping cosy in the Tassie winter.
Wonderful customer service!!! ‘

I love your products and think it’s so great that your love of knitting with your mum and grandmother has given you much pleasure and success. It is a lovely story. You must be very proud.
Debbie

⭐ We have two pieces of exciting news for you.

Firstly as you can see from this illustration by @lucyebowen that we have now added the Michael Cardigan to the MADE FOR YOU range and the PICK 'N' KNIT tool.

The Michael cardigan is a V-neck with a dropped shoulder sleeve and two pockets made in Merino wool from Donegal Yarns. With 40 colours to choose from you can embrace your inner rainbow whatever colours that may be. We cant wait to see what you choose!

Secondly the MADE FOR YOU range is now live. This is the first drop of these pieces. We will have a limited run of pieces this winter, so do get in early if you want a colourful custom knit in your favourite colours this Autumn Winter season.

The Pick 'n' Knit colour selector tool was created by @piercegleeson to help @helenepertl choose the colours for her jumper. I met Helen while doing a jumper consultation with her. Being a designer Helen is particular about colour. We had a lovely time going through the subtleties of her choice and various options. She mentioned that Pierce had built a basic tool to help her choose and that he was interested in chatting with me to do a more refined version.

As you can imagine I was delighted to work with Pierce to develop this tool. We firstly needed a beautiful simple illustration of the hat and jumper. @lucyebowen did a wonderful job on these technical yet softly illustrated drawings. I'm really delighted with how this piece of software works and the simplicity of it being just to select the colours, it's complex coding yet low fi in a way. So a huge thank you to Pierce for fitting this in around work and family life. It's such an addition to the experience.

What do you think of the tool? Any feedback? We love to hear your thoughts.

Hello - Dia Duit a chairde,

It's been a while since I have been posting here.  I took a lot of time off this summer to roam about the island, visiting old friends and making news ones. Swimming, kayaking trips, a Wild Irish Retreat to start my process of reclaiming the ancient language of Ireland.  It was time well spent and I am now ready to get back into the cosy world of all this wool and colour for the AW season.  

I hope you have enjoyed the newsletter emails & blog posts.  It is exciting to be re-launching the MADE FOR YOU range online this week. There will be a limited offering this year, so it is best to get in early with your order.  There will be two drops - the first is today for the newsletter subscribers who received an access code this morning.  Check your email if you haven't seen it! 

Otherwise the listings will go live on Friday morning, so jump on the PICK 'N' KNIT tool to choose your colours (You'll find it under the ORDERING menu on the website).  The second drop will be sometime in October. Subscribe to the newsletter if you want first dibs!

That's it for this post but there is more news to come  . . .

Slán go foill

My Mum was a big fan of tree climbing when she was a kid. I love how she has held on to this love of adventure and take her grandkids around the garden to find the best trees, encouraging them to reach just a little higher and to guide feet back onto branches until they can make the leap themselves. Some of my best days were spent in those trees, perched up in the dappled light through the leaves. Magic. ⁠

International Tree Week.
🌳
Looking towards the future of lands filled with trees. Our post yesterday is for a big giveaway in collaboration with @grown_clothing. 3 amazing prices. Details on that post.
🌳
What is your favorite tree?
I'm always really drawn to big weeping Willows especially alongside a river. I was lucky to have grown up with the river Dee going through our garden. I spent many days lying around with my pals under the willows.
🌳
Later living in Christchurch New Zealand, I felt at home there finding little spots under Willows along the beautiful meandering Avon river. It is a wonderful thing to lay on the earth under a tree.
🌳
Tell us your stories of connections with special trees
