A gift most rare and beautiful

I've been desperate to put this on the blog for ages, but I promised to keep it a secret. I am now the proud owner of this wonderful Elbic Coat : )))

One of the unique pleasures of being in business is when a customer becomes a friend. Ursi is from Switzerland and designs the most fabulous jackets. As we chatted about dyes and dyeing it turned out that we shared lots of other interests, so we kept in touch. When Ursi said she would like to design a jacket just for me, I was so excited. I sent off my measurements, chose my favourite colours and couldn't believe it when this beautiful gift arrived in the post!

The sleeves and medieval-inspired hood are knitted in Ursi's lovely hand-dyed yarn and incorporated into a vintage jeans-jacket. It is just so cool. Ursi will be selling her jackets soon online, so keep your eyes peeled and I'll let you know as soon as her site goes live. I have already seen some colour samples and believe me, they are equally stunning!

Thank you and hugs, Ursi : )))
