With Autumn upon us, now is the time to perfect your knitwear collection. From fine knit layers to chunky sweaters we talk you through the differing weights or gauges of some of our favourite styles, available in a stunning array of autumnal shades…

At this time of year we’re treated to some of nature’s most stunning colours, from the mottled red & yellow of the turning leaves to the deep brown of the falling horse chestnuts. Our own colour pallet replicates some of nature’s best whilst the unique breathable properties of Merino wool make it the must-have purchase for this time of year.  Layered or worn alone Merino is the ideal shield against a crisp Autumn morning whilst also extremely breathable making it perfect for a busy day.

"Fine Knit" crew necks are the perfect layer, try Cleves in Loren Yellow

Fine Knit:

Our 30 gauge or “Fine Knit” pieces are excellent for layering, Merino roll necks such as men’s Belvoir and women’s Catkin are perfect for wearing under a cardigan on cold days. A fine knit shirt is a must-have item for men, try our Brightgate pullover, the two tone design adds a twist to this classic style and is great for wearing with a tailored jacket for a sartorial look or paired down with jeans. Not forgetting timeless crew & round neck knits such as women’s Geranium or men’s style Cleves in Loren Yellow, both create a stylish look worn alone or over a collared shirt.

David Gandy perfecting a layered look, try our "Medium Knit" Burley cardigan

Medium Knit:

24 gauge or “Medium Knit” Merino styles are just that little bit thicker than our finer knits making them excellent for colder days whilst still maintaining a sleek silhouette. You can replicate the perfect layered look of David Gandy with our Medium Knit, Merino Burley cardigan. Or try our women’s cardigan Willa in the autumnal shade of Camel. Both would work well worn with one of our super soft Merino scarves such as unisex Lark on chilly days before your winter coat is required.

"Heavy Knit" styles Jesper and Symmetry

Heavy Knit:

“Heavy Knit” styles such as 5 gauge women’s cardigan, Jesper or men’s style Symmetry are chunky knit, luxury blend pieces that are must-have investments you’ll return to again & again. Substitute your coat for the Jesper cardigan on crisp mornings, perfect when paired with our bobble hat, Orbit in a matching shade. Whilst the cosy roll neck and unique textural design of Symmetry will make this sweater your go-to piece from the first frost right through to the harshest winter days.
