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.

This beautiful photo popped up for me recently. It's from the first photoshoot in 2016 and I love it.

It's amazing how far this little brand has come and where we set our sights on going. This year has been slow but sometimes you need to pause and let new things ferment until they start fizzing enough to pop into the world. Hmmm maybe I need a cold fizzy drink!

I am currently making my way to the UK for a holiday. I'll be buzzing around the Glastonbury area and down to Cornwall. Have you any tips or must sees? Would love to hear your suggestions. Sacred sights, hidden gems, magical swimming spots, tasty food, wild hearted people. We will be car camping with a teeny tent, so any campsites or wild camping spots.

I'm looking forward to this adventure. Here's to a lán spraoi agus fuinneamh fiáin ar an turas!

Grá mór
Liadain ♡

Holiday, Celebrate!

Hello Wool Gang,

I am going on holidays, so I wanted to give you a chance to stock up on knits before I go off for 3 weeks! Use the code below to receive 
20% OFF all our READY FOR YOU knits until Friday 15th July.

The studio will be closed from Monday 18th July.  
We will open again on Monday 8th August.  
If you order during this time we will process and 
post orders as soon as we return.
It might seem mad to order wool in the middle of a heatwave, yet
 the cold weather is never far away in Ireland!  
Maybe you have an upcoming birthday of someone special 
or a little baba arriving soon!
Wishing you all a wonderful summer.
Le grá & buíochas
Liadain & The Knit Team x

Wow what a great day on Saturday!
A massive Thank You to everyone who came, chatted, bought knits and had the craic. So happy with how it went and that there are alot more cosy knits out in the world.

Back in sunny West Cork today after the long drive yesterday. Lots of you are asking about more sales, we will do local markets in Schull and Skibbereen from time to time. I might pop a few bits on the website as well. So keep an eye on here but also sign up to the newsletter as that is where you'll get first dibs.

And who knows we might pop back to Dublin if there are any markets happening there! If you hear of one, let me know. Oh how we all miss the Dublin Flea, eh!

Til next time.
Big love
