Fair Isle Jumper in Orchard by Quinton + Chadwick
100% extra fine lambswool fair isle jumper by Quinton Chadwick inspired by harvest and fallen fruits. Damson, deep berry and lilac tones chime with rich oak brown and citrus to make a vibrant colour statement that is both flattering and uplifting.
The super soft jumper is is made from great quality yarn that is spun and dyed in Scotland using water from the local Loch Leven which is known for its purity and softness. This water is then cleaned and returned ensuring the precious including brown salmon and pink footed geese, are preserved in this beautiful RSPB nature reserve. The yarn goes to the nearby small family run Mill that knits the sweaters one at time and hand finishes them, using traditional Scottish skills and patterns and zero waste production approach. This attention to detail and time honoured craftsmanship will ensure the sweater lasts a lifetime and hopefully will be loved, kept and passed on like an heirloom.
Design duo Jess Quinton and Jane Chadwick came together with a mutual vision to keep skilled British craftsmanship alive. Using only small British mills and coastal Suffolk as inspiration, they combine traditional knitting techniques with new technology to make a more sustainable product. Quinton + Chadwick is known for its unique colour combinations and modern take on traditional patterns.
