No…not something I have taken up – more of a brand that I’d like to send you in the direction of. As seen in The Telegraph and Grazia magazine, Needle is a new luxury knitwear brand offering a haven of winter warmers in the form of contemporary pieces at affordable prices.
The timelessly gorgeous garments are manufactured in Italy from pure cashmere, alpaca blend yarns and extra fine merino. Founder and managing director Lizzie Cawthray previously worked as a knitwear developer at L.K. Bennett before going it alone and launching the AW13 collection. Drawing on her cookery skills, she keeps her team happy with food bribery on photo shoots and decided that the Made In Italy label is a great excuse for indulging in gelato whilst on production visits. Food and cosy knitwear…Lizzie is a woman after my own heart!
