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!

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 !

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.

Dia Daoibh a chairde,
I decided to to try on all these Made For You jumpers, before they were posted out their humans, so that you could see the different sizes.
I fit a size xs for a super neat fit but can also wear a Frank Large, especially as this person requested shorter arms, which suits me nicely as I like sleeves to be clear of my wrists. You`ll always notice me with folded sleeves. These busy hands need to be kept free to do their thing.

In order of appearance and of size -

Ems in XSmall - Sea Pink
Eileen in Small - Lichen
Eileen in Medium - Moss Green
Eileen in Medium - Celeste Teal
Eileen in Medium with a SuperCrop length - Deep Red
Frank in Large with shorter sleeves - CelesteGrey
Eileen in Large - Rust

Message if you have questions on sizing. I`ll add these to the Jumpers Stories highlight too.

We have limited space left for orders to be made in time for delivery before we close for the holidays.

Thanks to @millie.egan for taking these photos.

Calling for a C E A S E F I R E in P a l e s t i n e ♡

Le grá agus buíochas
Liadain

This hilarious bunch of photos and videos kindly taken by my pal @lilyajsmith when she was here for a visit. It`s pretty funny to be in front of the camera but we had the craic and got the job done!

The aim was to show you all these knits that are up for grabs. Some have weird quirks and sizing, others are completely perfect. So their prices will reflect that. I`m currently doing up a list of sizes and prices. If you want first dibs then DM me and I will get back to you when I have the details ready to go.

We can ship worldwide.

Grá agus buíochas,
Liadain

Fashion Show
Fibre of Our Being Exhibition

The big event of the kilcoe_studios x fibreshed_ireland weekend was the Fashion Show kindly hosted by levis_corner_house_ballydehob. Sonia was logistics queen and scheduled the order of designers and got lots of amazing designers on board. I worked with Fibreshed to take submissions from all over the country and find models to wear them. So wonderful to receive parcels filled with stunning fashion crafts.

Our compére was the amazing Maeve Higgins maeveinamerica. Maeve who did an epic job of creating a fun, informative night, had a wee chat with each designer about their materials and process and the craic with the audience. Doxy eldoxio was the DJ for the night with sweet tunes. These photos are were taken by the talented Jason Lee. Huge thanks you you all. Total Starbars!

Many of the designers were West Cork locals alicehalliday tamsinblackbourn re.cut and lots of Fibreshed members from all over Ireland jeanmlong irishfibrecrafters

The standard of craft(wo)manship was incredible. So many stunning pieces and most of them - I saw, I liked and I wanted!

We gathering lots of our amazing community to model and help back stage. I probably wont remember all the names but will try - Samuel, Danae, Jen, Bloup, Caitríona, Fiona, Lucia, Caroline, Alice, Irene, Ayo, Shoko, Carragh, Grace & anyone I forgot!

The whole event was amazing, heartwarming and loads of craic. There was a massive amount of organising by Sonia, Anna and myself. Joe & Caroline and all the Levis crew were incredible as always. Such a wonderful bunch of people! Huge Thanks to all involved. It was magic.
