It’s authentic, it’s tough, it’s rough, it’s coarse – it’s possibly the most rustic hand knitted garment in the world right now! Leaf Belt is gorgeously raw and natural.

Made with the same pure wool thread that’s used to weave Harris Tweed, Leaf Bodice, of course, smells like Harris Tweed; very woolly. The threads are taken from leftover ‘bobbins’ used by Harris Tweed weavers on the islands of Lewis and Harris to weave the cloth. This means it has experienced minimal processing to preserve the qualities of the wool fibre; wool from the resilient sheep of the Hebrides.

This is a fae piece. What an earthy energy it has about it. Several threads of grassy, greeny–grey Harris wool were hand-plied on a drop spindle to create a thick, heavy weight yarn. This was then knitted on big bamboo needles to make this leaf and garter stitch garment. Leaf Belt feels so good on. It is fastened at the waist by two sturdy black press studs. You might choose to wear your belt as a collar on some days.

Care instructions:

Feel raw natural fibres on your body, wear nature, be one with it.
Harris Wool Leaf Belt: Spot-clean. Or possibly never wash – natural wool in this lanolin-rich state repels dirt making washing unnecessary, just as with Harris Tweed. If you do decide to give it a little dip, use a natural wool wash, hand wash and dry flat and be prepared for the wool to “bloom” which means expand a little – this is fine and looks good too.
