Our woollens are all handknit with wool by NL knitters. Years ago, knitting was not a hobby but a necessity. Knitting was a part of everyday life; most girlslearned to knit at a young age. Wool vamps, socks, mitts, caps, scarves and sweaters were an essential part of the wardrobe for all and especially necessary for fishermen, farmers, miners, loggers and those who worked outdoors. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in this traditional skill and many have learned to knit.
