Lessons in Layering

Easy Jersey Dress

Welcome to cosy

Whether you hunker down in a lambswool jumper or slip on an easy fleece gilet for a trip outdoors, we’ve filled our Autumn Collection with cool weather-ready pieces that serve all your layering needs.

There’s nothing like falling leaves to put our thoughts to autumn dressing. The trees turn burnt orange and the breeze picks up… and we reach for a wardrobe filled with layers.

Layering is an art. Your layered-up look should feel effortlessly put-together and fabulously bulk-free. And be warm, of course – that goes without saying. On this account, we’ve filled our new collection with versatile pieces you can mix and match. Start your base layer with a jersey top or light merino jumper, then add a lambswool cardigan or lambswool jumper for unmatchable warmth. Days outside need gilets and premium-quality coats, and this season’s statement coats are our finest yet; their Italian-sourced wool is unbelievably warm.

Take a look, and get set for the chilly season with your favourite layers…

Magical merino jumpers

Our British-based design team bring you plenty of options when it comes to layering up. By trapping air between insulating layers, you surround your body in microclimates that help to keep out the cold.

Soft Merino Knit

Long-Sleeve Cotton Top

Lighter fabrics like cotton and merino wool are ideal for transitional layering. Less chunky than lambswool, they make the perfect base layer for your next layered look. We love this Soft Merino Knit in seasonal orange. The stripe accents lend the style a modern look, while our Italian-spun merino is naturally soft with smooth, flat-laying fibres perfect for layering up without bulk.

Lambswool jumper for layerable warmth

A lambswool jumper is your go-to for chilly days. Pulled on over everyday tops and teamed with cosy accessories, there’s no better way to stay warm this season. Luxury lambswool and easy-wear pinks combine in our Striped Lambswool Jumper while our Mélange Lambswool Roll Neck brings extra warmth to pure lambswool with a high ribbed roll neck. Thick, cosy and timeless, they’re the styles proving that layering is about quality as well as quantity.

Striped Lambswool Jumper

Mélange Lambswool Roll Neck

Our luxury lambswool jumpers really are a treat. Woven using best-in-class yarns from Z. Hinchliffe & Sons, a 250-year-old mill in West Yorkshire, they’re irresistibly warm and beautifully stylish. Z. Hinchliffe is one of the last traditional spinners in England and dye their fibres before spinning to create a supersoft final yarn.

Cosy cardigans (for every weather)

From capsule tees to colourful statements, we craft all our clothes by hand right here in Britain. Our knitters have decades of experience and put their exceptional skill into individually knitting each garment panel together. This careful process, called ‘full fashioning,’ gives a superior, longer-lasting quality.

Colour Block Merino Cardigan

Our Colour Block Merino Cardigan is a great piece to have in your edit. Versatile tonal colours grant it endless styling options, while lightweight merino makes it always layer-ready.

Stripes stay on trend, so why not add this Cosy Lambswool Cardigan to your wardrobe too? Beautifully crafted with a tawny front and sugar-pastel striped back, this lambswool cardigan makes a classic winter investment.

Embracing the great indoors? Wrap yourself up in our Longline Lambswool Cardigan. Long sleeves, deep pockets and a longline shape grant this lounge piece extra warmth.

Find your fleece gilet

Layering is a must when you head outside. For ‘in-between’ days before the chill hits, we recommend this fleece gilet. Its lovely texture and longline shape afford extra cosiness – and the blackcurrant shade is deliciously seasonal. We like it over print dresses too.

Wool-blend Gilet

Supersoft Faux Fur Gilet

We’re loving gilets this season. Why not slip on a contemporary-style quilted gilet or this Supersoft Faux Fur Gilet for something really luxurious? It’s satin lined and sumptuously soft, with that ever-handy feature – pockets.

Warm winter coats for outdoor adventures

Elevate your most important winter layer this year – your winter coat. Our Herringbone Wool-blend Coat is fully lined and elegantly textural, with a roomy fit so you can pull your favourite jumper on underneath.

Chenille Italian Wool Coat

For a true style statement, you won’t be able to resist this Chenille Italian Wool Coat. We’ve crafted the luscious bouclé from Italian-sourced wool to form a rich, weighty fabric that’s stylish and ultra-warm. The bouclé (pronounced boo-clay) fabric creates an enviable texture contrast against your winter layers, while the deep red colour will make a statement season after season. Your investment piece for winter.

And the final touch? Cosy accessories like wrist warmers and wool-blend scarves.
