New from the AVINGTON COLLECTION: The beret is having a fashion comeback and this fisherman’s rib version with spiral crown shaping is intriguing to knit. Paired with the mitts, which come in two options, these accessories will be worn for many seasons to come.

Highly prized and super soft, Australian Superfine Merino is the ultimate natural fibre. The most amazing secret of all is how it feels against the skin. Silky and smooth, with an unparalleled comfort factor, this wool can be worn directly next to the skin.

Superfine Merino breathes with the body; it warms you up when the temperature drops and helps to cool when you feel hot.
