A NOTE FROM KIMBERLEY REEMAN . . .


“On the night of September 11, 2014, Douglas suffered a serious accident and was in hospital and rehabilitation for five weeks. Throughout that time I never truly slept, only napped fully dressed under a hand-knitted throw of this pattern I had made for him several years ago. It was wonderfully warm and comforting. When he came home safely to me, I thought some of his readers might like a similar comforting embrace. Each throw has been entirely hand-knitted by me in colours evoking the mariner’s world, in buttersoft 100% merino wool. Each throw measures approximately 48 inches by 60 inches (122 cm by 152 cm). The price includes worldwide tracked airmail postage. For every sale, I will make a donation to the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance service, which saved Douglas’s life.”

SHELL
Inspired by the creams and ivories of the sea’s treasures, this beautiful eco-friendly blend of 70% pure undyed baby alpaca and 30% undyed merino wool is softer than cashmere, and deliciously warm. The colours are completely natural. “Shell” may be hand-washed in cold water or dry cleaned.

LAGOON
Clear deep blue-greens of the coral seas. This Malabrigo worsted merino wool is dry cleanable and hand washable in cold water only.

HEART OF OAK
A tribute to the legendary ships and men of Nelson’s navy, Heart of Oak is a blend of woodsy golds and browns from copper and chestnut through to deepest chocolate. This Malabrigo superwash merino wool is dry cleanable or machine-washable on a cold gentle cycle.


GREY DAWN
Inspired by John Masefield’s poem
Sea Fever, “a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking”, this Malabrigo superwash merino wool is a sophis-ticated blend of greys from pearl through to charcoal. Grey Dawn is dry cleanable or machine-washable on a cold gentle cycle.

MERMAID
As mysterious and beautiful as its namesake, in smoky muted shades of dark green. Malabrigo, the yarn manufacturer, states that this superwash merino wool is machine-washable on a cold gentle cycle.

NORTH SHORE
Rich shades of deep blue, inspired by the sea off the coasts of Cornwall. This Malabrigo worsted merino wool is dry cleanable and hand washable in cold water only.
