Our pick of Knits for Wool week

Apparently Oct 5-11th is Wool Week (those with equally woolly pregnancy-brains can be forgiven for not knowing that!) and Friday 9th Oct is Woolly Hat Day.

Not that we need an excuse to cosy up in this weather but here is our pick of the chicest of the sheep.

Crafty types can knit their own beanie, with luxe alpaca and merino wool (plus the instructions) supplied by Celtic and co.

Or spoil a newborn with a pure wool blanket from Babyblooms, handwoven on antique looms…
How lovely are these hand-knitted Faroese sweaters from MamaOwl – oversized for years of outdoor play.
These colourful cashmere socks are on sale from MySocks… We love the vampy red with biker boots as an Autumnal colour pop.
Or embrace the ethnic folklore trend with this huge embroidered wool scarf from Charlotte’s Web at Notonthehighst.
