Lady Zanzibah Winter Collection !

 

As winter is nearly here, I guess its a good time to launch my range of designer handcrafted knitware. This is a small selection from my exclusive range using only the finest alpaca fleeces from my herd.  I have especially selected a choice of natural colours from my herd to compliment the styles that are all unique to 'The Lady Zanzibah' range, which make up this winter collection for 2012.
   
 
As I have designed the styles personally, you won't find any thing like it.  This makes our range very unique.  I only make a limited quantity of my garments each year.  Every one is different being totally hand crafted from start to finish.  My yarns have been processed by The Border Mill, creating a beautiful blend of colours all processed in Aran weight.

 
As we like to be different, I decided to knit two colours together.  This produces a double thickness effect which is sure to keep you nice and snug on those winter days.  I have designed a 'flower scarf' which allows the wearer pass the scarf through the flower in the middle of the scarf, creating a slightly different way of wearing a scarf !

 
It is always nice to see an end product.  I get great pleasure keeping my herd of alpacas, it has taken some years to establish my multi-coloured award winning herd.  I always had a vision, like most of us who set out on this path !!  My vision was to breed coloured alpacas that we are proud of.  Also to use this most wonderful fibre that these beautiful animals offer to us. 
 
My dream was to create my own knitware brand that would stand out from the mass produced man made items that we all take for granted, to make something with pride that will be admired and hopefully worn with that comfort in mind.  With the knowledge that you are wearing something very special.  That has been lovingly cared for and hand crafted from start to finish. We already have several satisfied customers, wearing our brand.
 
 
This is our aim ..... with The Lady Zanzibah Knitware Selection.
 
I think its fair to say .... my dreams are coming to fruition !!
