The knit ‘Moonrise’ features an aubergine-purple yarn combined with a thick woolen white-to-grey yarn. The name ‘Moonrise’ symbolizes the end of the day. In my research, I found that the moon does not only appear in nights and that it is perfectly normal when it does not always appear in the night sky.
Back to the knit: All the products of ‘collection 2’ consist of a pattern that slightly shifts, which results a contrasting pattern right in the middle of the product. This gives an extra exciting twist to the product! The hand knitted product is intensely soft and keeps your warm though the winter. The size of this product is approximately 120cm by 180cm.
This product is hand made and part of ‘Socially Made Amsterdam’. Read all about it here
- Additional information
The Winter in Holland ‘warm knits’ collection for winter 2014/2015 is knitted from a combination of Virgin wool and a cashmere wool. After using this knit for a while, the pattern in the Virgin wool will felt, which makes it even more beautiful.
A characteristic of pure wool is that it is easy to care for. It is a self-cleaning product. “The core of the wool fibre consists of two types of cells that absorb different quantities of moisture. As a result, one type swells more than the other and they move in constant friction. This gives the wool fibre a mechanical self-cleaning effect.” Wool products do not need frequent cleaning and rather should be aired in humid weather conditions.
Wool if treated kindly with respond in kind by maintaining its beauty and softness for its long life.
In order to keep the wool happy:
1. Minimal washing.
2. If washing is necessary, spot washing or a cold hand wash will give the best results.
3. Do not put me in the dryer. Dry me on a flat surface.
4. Do not iron me, the woven pattern will not appreciate that.
5. Love me & hug me. I will do the same for you.
