Hail is the appearance of hailstones in the form of precipitation. This type of weather is not appreciated by many; it consists of solid chunks of ice which are formed by water vapor in the frosty atmosphere. These hard chunks hurt on your skin when you’re situated in the middle of a hailstone storm. The sky turns dark grey. People in the streets make place for the bad weather that easily soaks the landscape and that will fill the fresh air with treacherous water stones.
The knit ‘Hail’ is named after the dark sky that appears when a hailstorm approaches. 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. 100% wool has a self-cleaning effect.
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.
