Hand-dyed Cardigan Kit for Andrea Mowry's gorgeous Rose Cardigan.
This open cardigan is a true adventure in knitting! Combining unique sideways construction, cables, fading and exposed seams to create a flattering oversized dolman style sweater that looks great on all types of figures! Knit in one colour or four, to suit your style! This sweater has a beautiful curved underarm that creates a lot of drape for an oversized look, with long, slim cuffs that give you different styling options. You can either wear them long, to accentuate the slender portion of your arm, or cuff them for a shorter sleeve!

Based in beautiful Northern Ireland, Bear In Sheep's Clothing are a fabulous husband & wife team of talented indie dyers and podcasters. Bernie and Derek are passionate about luxury fibres sourced as locally and ethically as possible. For now that means British wool, spun in Britain.
Hand-dyed with love and care in Belfast, Bernie & Derek consider the health of the planet in every step they take: using non-toxic, heat and light fast acid dyes, and food grade citric acid as the setting agent. Every last bit of dye is exhausted from their pots. Water is reused and they use as little plastic in their packaging as possible. We love that it arrives here in giant potato sacks!
Bear's colour palette are often inspired by the Irish countryside, cult classics and cartoons, even a piece of jewellery! They absolutely love what they do and it really shows in their gorgeous yarns!
