A Note, from Pauline

Hey pal,

There's no doubt that knitting has made its comeback. To appreciate the handmade process is to understand the care, time and story that shapes each piece. 

Each piece I make is a celebration of natural fibres and requires an enormous amount of physical work to stitch - over 10,000 individual stitches in one Daydreamer jumper. This care and attention is reflected in the price of handmade knits.

Handmade knits are the antidote to fast fashion. I thank you in advance for supporting traditional artisanal work and life in the slow lane.

I design based on what I personally want to wear - modern with a nod to vintage silhouettes. I knit throughout the year and will pop current stock on the website, which is periodically updated.

Bisous

A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS

With more than 10,000 stitches in one Daydreamer jumper, sometimes I need a little help. At times I rely on a legendary all-female team of knitters - some gorgeous women in Sydney and in India, who help keep your delivery times down as much as possible. 

Our Indian team are made up of multi-skilled craft artisans, who work under fair workplace conditions including pay rates and work hours. They are upskilled in collaboration with an NGO.

 

GIVING BACK

I give back 5% of profits to causes close to my heart. So far, contributions have been made to conservation projects through Taronga Conservation Society Australia, and to COVID causes in India.

The Art of Handmade

YARN SUPPLY IN THE SLOW (FASHION) LANE

The animals we source our yarns from produce a limited volume of yarn each season, so when our supply is dry and our pieces are out of stock, it means we're simply waiting on the next shearing, spinning and dyeing process to take place. So grab yourself a cuppa and join us in the slow fashion lane.

Care Guide

YARN SCHOOL

Humans have a long history with wool given it is a natural, renewable and 100% biodegradable natural fibre. It has superior insulation and anti-bacterial properties while allowing your beautiful bod to breathe.

 

The mohair we use is some of the finest you can find, celebrated for its lightweight, yet warm qualities. Add strength, softness and durability and we've got ourselves a winner. Due to the formation of its fibres, garments won't wrinkle or stretch.

CARING FOR YOUR PIECE

If you absolutely need to, hand wash only using a gentle wool wash in water no warmer than luke-warm. Avoid rubbing the fabric too much, a gentle squeeze and soak should do. Roll into a towel to remove excess water and dry flat. Do not use a dryer!

To prevent accidental misshaping, store folded, not hung.
