  • Just in: Ankara Snood Scarf

    We’ve got a brand new accessory for you this season. The new Ankara snood scarf combines a funky African print fabric on one side and a soft fleece on the other. Who says winter has to be filled with boring block colours. This new scarf will inject the much needed colour into the dreary winter months and the soft fleece will keep you nice and warm at the same time.

    You can wear it in many ways; on the fleece side, the fabric side, as one loop, as two loops. Under your coat or jacket or above it. You choose your own style!

  • Just In: Etu Aso-oke Minisnap clutches

    The Etu Minisnap Aso-oke clutch was so popular we decide to bring it back. This Aso-oke fabric is a true vintage and I am told it well over 50 years old at the very least. Probably closer to a century! Personally, I think blue is the new black. It still easily complements other colours without being as predictable as black.

    In addition to that, I have introduced the Etu and Lace which is a variation of this mini blue clutch purse. This newer version is in a slightly lighter shade of blue (an even rarer type of the Etu fabric). It also incorporates a hint of Guipure lace for that added touch of elegance. I think it would make a great purse for a wedding or for a cocktail party.

    A converation started- if you are all dressed up and can’t think of how to make the conversation flow with your fellow party goes, tell them about how your purse is probably over a 100 years old!

    What do you think? Is your flavour more stark and simple, or a little more playful with the lace? Lets know your thoughts.

  • Item of the Week: Chocolate Brown Wool Snood

    Brown is one of those colours that you might not get too excited if given a choice BUT just like black, I think it goes with everything. (Except maybe fuchsia pink).

    Think about it, creams, navy blue, dark green. A great alternative to the usual black. So for this winter we have introduced a Dark Brown Snood. The snood has got to be the most popular winter accessory for 3 years running. This one is in our signature chunky knit in the XL style. Hand knitted as usual. If brown is not for you, then check out our other colour options black, forest green, mustard yellow, purple, dark tealBrown wool snood Brown wool snood

    This would also make a great gift for men, one size fits all so need to worry about sizing. What’s your favourite winter accessory?

  • The Urbanknit Alpaca Cowl

    There are cowls and snoods everywhere you look, with everyone trying to stay warm and snug in this cold cold weather.

    We decided to make a version for those that want something extra soft with added touch of luxury.

    Alpaca Cowl Midnight Blue Alpaca Cowl Alpaca Cowl

    This extra chunky cowl is hand-knitted from a yarn that is a blend of Alpaca and wool. This makes it extra soft and warm.

    It comes in two versions, the Midnight Blue and the Camel Cream.

    Let me know what you think!
