I first met Kathryn from Long Neck Scarves at the Shop Local Fair organised by Saddleworth WI. I have to say I was gutted that my challenge prevented me from buying one and I will definitely be purchasing one post December 2nd. Long Neck Scarves are all designed and hand knitted by Kathryn, at her home in Saddleworth, Lancashire. Kathryn shared with me the background to her craft…. “I love hand knitted garments and hope the revival for hand knitting continues. My aim is to produce a luxurious and superior hand knitted accessory that is well made and finished providing quality at an affordable price. I knit all the scarves from ‘Rowan’ 100% merino wool, purchased from British suppliers. The scarves can be hand washed with care or dry cleaned. There are many scarves on the market to choose from, however, not many are 100% wool and fewer still are 100% merino wool.
The scarves are soft, tactile and warm designed to make you feel special. I make scarves and snoods for Ladies, Men, Girls and Boys with many designs and seasonal colours to choose from. You can choose from the super range in my online shop at Long Neck Scarves or even have one made exclusively for you or someone special by choosing ‘My Scarf’ on the web site. This is a bespoke service offering you the option to have the design, colour and size of scarf made for you at no extra cost.
All the scarves are beautifully presented and make an ideal gift for yourself or someone special.”
These scarves are just what we need as the Autumnal Season sneaks into view, looking forward to seeing you at the fair Kathryn
