Speckled wool skirt 6-8yrs
Hand knitted girl’s wool skirt.
Out of stock
This pretty, hand knitted, wool skirt has been created from a soft, single ply superwash merino that I have hand dyed in a light grey and speckled with pinks and purples. There is a matching pink-purple trim detail at the hem. It has a slim body at the waist and hips and then flares into a wonderful twirly drape. The yarn is beautifully soft and has a slight halo. The waistband is elasticated, with the elastic enclosed within the knitting. I knitted this with a child of around the ages 6-8 years in mind please check the measurements before purchasing.
Waist – unstretched – 23″/59cm
Full length – 16″/41cm
Although the skirt has been made with machine washable yarn, I would advise hand washing, gently pulling into shape and drying flat to keep it looking good. The wool may pill a little with wear, but this can be rectified with gentle shaving.
