Eadfrith Wrap in Yeavering Bell and Cheviot Marsh
Our Eadrith Wrap is a dramatic cable wrap that is a wonderful, snuggly blanket around your shoulders.
Originally designed for Yeavering Bell Aran this version has been knitted holding one strand of Yeavering Bell 4ply together with one strand of Cheviot Marsh 4ply. Together this gives the weight of an Aran year, with the bouncy softness of the Cheviot lambswool and the soft halo of the mohair to knit into a fabric that it just divine.
Eadfrith was the Bishop of Lindisfarne and is most well known for his illustrations of the Lindisfarne Gospels which were written to honour the life of St Cuthbert. The Celtic influences, intricate colour work and incredible patterns make the Lindisfarne Gospels an unending source of inspiration and this wrap is infused with the history and creative elements of this amazing masterpiece.
Eadfrith wrap is dramatic and attention seeking, and will always attract admiration. It will keep you incredibly warm as the dense fabric created by the detailed cables and the rich textures envelop you in comforting style as you walk on the beach in the wild winter winds, snuggle by a log fire with hot chocolate or snooze under it’s blanket like embrace.
