There is a distinct chill in the air and here on the river Windrush there is a mist that sits above the water lending a sense of magic to the surrounding cotswold hills.

I for one, have been unpacking my woollies and putting my sheepskin boots on standby for the chilly days to come.

The Purl English studio are busy preparing for the Christmas holiday season, knitting and dispatching treasured cashmere presents, I am sure some of which will sit beneath a decorated tree for that wonderfully special first Christmas Day.

We have had great fun developing some new cashmere baby goodies to tempt you and have come up with a lovely original gift for the latest newcomers to the world:

A collection of three hand made cashmere toys made especially for the youngest of children. Made with the luxuriously soft pure cashmere, and backed with pure silk to comfort, soothe and delight. Scaled to be the perfect size for developing hands.

The set includes ; a Christmas tree, a star and a polar bear cub, these are carefully packed into a handmade linen stocking, ready to hang up for Christmas morning.

These are being specially made to order. Please contact us via the website if you would like to know more.
