EH Star Fashion Buy – Heirloom Fairisle Cardigan by People Tree. A girl can never have too many cardigans! Perfect for Christmas morning, I will definitely be hoping Santa comes down the chimney with this stunning example of Fairisle design – a fabulous knitting style that originated in a tiny island north of Scotland, also called Fair Isle. This form of knitting grew in popularity after Prince of Wales (later to become Edward VIII) wore Fair Isle tank tops in public in 1921, and they are still popular today because they add a dash of colour to winter style.
EH Star Fashion Buy – Heirloom Fairisle Cardigan By People Tree – the ideal Christmas gift for someone you love.
While more traditional examples of Fairisle
can verge on the frumpy and utilitarian, this swingy
cardigan gives a great edge to an essential piece of winter style kit. I adore the colour, a vibrant navy blue, which works brilliantly with the intricately colourful detailing on the yoke. People Tree works with KTS, a Fairtrade garment co-operative in Nepal to create these timeless, hand-crafted pieces which represent remarkable value. The People Tree fairisle cardigan
comes in 100% wool and features a round neck, three wooden button detail and a lattice-work design. This sumptuous, timeless investment piece will keep you as warm as toast on Siberian winter days.
