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 !

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.

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,

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.

This jumper came about from chats with my wonderful friend @dearbhlaglynn. Dearbhla is an amazing yoga teacher & film maker and she loves to be warm.

She has one of our Ailbhe Tops which she loves but also wanted something that kept her lower back and kidneys warm especially in winter when wearing leggings inbetween teaching yoga. I know when I get up early on a winter morning to do yoga or an evening Yin class, I want a jumper to keep me super cosy and this is it.

This Sky Blue one is the 2nd one and I am keen to get more feedback on it. DM if you are interested in it. We will open up to take orders and have a range of colours to choose from.

Let us know what you think of it. Love to hear feedback.

Le grá & buíochas

Woaaa check out this colourful mountain of kerchiefs that I am currently working my way through. Ironing and labelling them so they are ready to keep your neck, head or waist warm.

I found myself tying mine around my waist recently to keep my lower back cosy just when a cool breeze blows when your wearing your summer crop top!

I am absolutely in love with the Lavender colour and have been wearing it non stop. It is reviving many of my old staples and giving them new life!

There are 25 colours online! 6 new ones! Made in soft merino lambswool.

Le grá

This new collection Dathú is a collaboration with Malú Colorín of @talu.earth.

Dathú - coloration, colouring, dyeing.

This jumper is knit with merino wool on a hand driven knitting machine, joined with a hand driven linker and hand sewn to finish.

Malú tie-dyed it with natural dyes - Madder, Weld and Indigo.

The dyes she uses come from plants grown and processed in Europe using organic or low-energy methods that don’t cause deforestation. These plants have tried and tested historical efficacy and colourfastness.

This inital limited edition run was to test out our process and the techniques. We only have one of each piece which is live on my website. Link in bio.

I also love that using natural dyes make these products completely compostable at the end of a very long life of keeping you cosy. I still wear the first hat I made myself 8 years ago!

I am keen to hear your thoughts on our Dathú collection and if you would like a piece, we will take expressions of interest for the next limited edition run.

Le grá agus buíochas
