Woodbind is a fitted drop-shoulder pullover with panels of ribbing down the sides and underarms, and columns of faux cables on the front and back. For this design Marina Skua was inspired by the textures on the bark of old trees; the deep ridges and twisting of ivy vines are reflected in the ribbing and faux cable details. ‘Woodbind’ is an old rural name for wild vines that grow in hedgerows and up trees.

We've put together some yarn kits in Beacons, our 3-fold super soft DK weight yarn. 

Please note that these yarn kits do not include a copy of the book or pattern. You can find the digital pattern here.

Climate positive

1.48kg. That's the CO2 equivalent footprint of each skein. In calculating this, we've been our own harshest critic - it's definitely a lot less than this, but we still offset 3kg for every one. So far, we've removed over 70,000kg of CO2E from the atmosphere.

1 skein = 1 tree

We've partnered with Ecologi to plant a tree for every single skein we sell. So far, we've planted over 15,000.
