Sky blue beret handmade from British wool
Sweet sky blue beret to brighten your day. I have used a blend of two of the softest British wools: Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester for this lovely ladies beret.
It has been knitted to my own design, with a subtle lace texture. As usual I have hand-knit using needles "in-the-round" so there are no ugly or uncomfortable seams. The sweet little "Roses Workshop" brand label is laser etched faux leather.
To fit average adult head size 55-63cm (21.5-24.5 inches) and slightly stretchy for comfort.
I love working with the many different wools produced here from British breeds of sheep. The Wensleydale is from Yorkshire; it has long shiny, crinkly wool that looks like dreadlocks. The Blue-faced Leicester looks down it's long roman nose at you. It is the skin which is dark blue/grey colour - the wool is white and curly, and one of the softest in the UK.
Hand-washing is best to keep pure wool in top condition, but if your machine has a cool/ gentle/ wool setting then that works too! Never put wool into a tumble drier, as it will shrink and felt.
