Spring is just around the corner!

We love this time of year! Signs of new growth are starting to peek through everywhere you look and we have plenty of new things happening in the studio and on the website as well. Take a look at some of the exciting plans and products happening this year at Sian O’Doherty…

Introducing “The Journals…”

These brand new textile covered journals are fantastic statement items that are practical, too. Available in a range of iconic Sian O’Doherty fabrics, these plain sheet notebooks with knit covers are expertly produced to a very high standard and are a useful way to enjoy a little bit of sustainable style whether you are out and about or tucked up at home and enjoying making those never ending to-do lists! Go and see the lovely range of designs available in the shop…

Behind the scenes

The increase in production of our home produced alpaca fibre over the last year has been a seemingly never ending source of inspiration for new fabrics and new products. There are swatches for new fabrics over almost every available surface in the studio … watch this space for exciting new designs in the spring!

Samples are also starting to come in from our wonderful partners who are sharing their expertise and helping to develop new product ranges – including alpaca filled cushion pads and quilts. We are committed to using every last bit of fibre from our fleecy friends as part of our drive towards sustainability and are excited to see these luxury home-wares coming to the shop soon.

Spring is a season for layering; we optimistically leave the heavy coats behind – but are often grateful for a snuggly wrap to ward off the chill that is never far away! Sian’s range of warm and lightweight wraps will keep you cosy and stylish while you are out and about enjoying those early days of sunshine. Sunny yellows are joyful choice at this time of year – whatever your favourite colour is, you are bound to find just the style you are looking for here.

Upcoming events…

Come and meet us at our first event of the year at Wonderwool Wales, Builth Wells

April 25th-26th 2020

A fantastic event that you just can’t miss!

Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells
Saturday 10am – 5:30pm,

Sunday 10am – 4:30pm

Spring also marks the start of the season of shows and events where you can come and meet Sian and have a chance to see her knitwear up close. This April the 2020 round kicks off with the always wonderful Wonderwool Wales at Builth Wells. A real highlight of the year for Sian, this extensive show is well worth a visit for the wide range of different stalls showcasing some of the very best of artisan production with all things wooly from across Wales and beyond (not to mention some truly great food!). Do come along, say “Hello,” and wrap up in something warm to take home.
