The Oberon Sweater, is a handcrafted piece. It has been lovingly crocheted by hand from 100% Organic Cotton yarn, also hand dyed to our exact colour scheme inspired by the jewel tones of the pre-raphaelites paintings. Perfect for layering this Winter, and matches with the Shalott cardigan.

Enter the world of legends, dragons, mythological creatures and magic. Inspired by the local folklore of Alderley Edge Forest and it’s resident wizard, our jewel toned prints this season take on the form of ancient stories, retrieving swords from mysterious lakes, welsh tales of dragons with acts of chivalry and bravery. Paired with classic tartans, regal elements and William Morris inspired symbolism to evoke this mystical era but in an updated and wearable style.
To encapsulate the romance of this theme we looked to the pre-Raphaelites, who reinvigorated interests in classic British folklore in beautiful painted form, with flowing fabrics and unconventionally loose waistlines. We have imbued a sense of medieval dress in our shape design by taking bodice shapes and panelling details from armour and doublets, with gathered puff sleeves to create this iconic whimsical silhouette.
