This sweater is hand knitted. It is made using an uneven and authentic yarn by Fonty, a small French spinning mill. It is knitted using a single thread yarn so is medium thick. The neckline is finished in tubular 1×1 ribbing and is wide and broad. It has a wide sleeve that narrows at the cuff and is finished using 1×1 ribbing, which means it puffs at the base. The fit is very loose and long.

This sweater is baggy and a little long. It has wide sleeves that narrow at the cuff and is finished using 1×1 ribbing. It comes in one size and is suitable for sizes 36 to 40.

For years and years I’ve owned a sweater that was hand knitted by Raphaëlle using this yarn. It hasn’t lost any of its beauty, softness, shine or bounce… it is just unique!
This yarn is by Fonty, a small French spinning mill in the Creuse.

When I first went to visit the site, I was shown the pretty little stream that runs through the mill and the clarity of the wastewater after it had been treated in a bamboo pool. The visit had started well! The spinning mill, founded in 1880, is one of the last in France and operates on great values. It makes natural and authentic yarns in beautiful colours, designed for hand knitting.

I tried having this sweater machine knitted in France. Without success.

If I wanted to use this beautiful French mohair to make sweaters, then hand knitting was the only way forward! At the moment, I’m not sure it’ll be possible to keep making this sweater because it takes at least 3 days to knit. Even so, I want to keep trying because this hand knitted sweater is the most beautiful and durable thing ever.
