Soft tweed pure merino wool, spun in West Donegal.
The simplicity and usefulness of this wrap makes it a winner and tempting to have more than one!
Now longer each wrap consists of 60,000 stitches all hand loomed by us.
Each piece is cast on and cast off by hand with a double thickness of yarn and after knitting is given a light washing to increase the softness and drape.
The word 'Aimsir' is Irish for weather, something we talk a lot about. It is pronounced 'Am-Sure' (say it quickly!)
My wool is so healthy to wear and antibacterial, plus you’ll be living off the compliments.
What is a handloomed knit?
Handloomed means a hand operated knitting machine is used, no electricity needed!Each stitch is cast on individually, each line or row is made by moving a knitting ‘carriage’ across a bed of needles. The eyes and hands work together skillfully with not a power cable in site!

How to care for me
I don’t need much washing although my Italian cousins say that I’m a gorgeous natural thing and washing improves me! .
Bullet point summary:
Roll up when stored
30 degree hand or machine wool wash cycle
Only recommended detergents
Squeeze all excess water out after a handwash (roll in a dry clean towel)
Dry flat, NEVER tumble dry
Avoid direct sunlight
Hang-up if you wish, choose the hanger carefully (incase shoulders get stretched)
Dry cleaning is allowed, but we prefer washing
Often all that’s needed is to hang in the air a few hours to refresh
Avoid seat belts and cross - body bags due to fabric abrasion
