For our American friends, Thanksgiving is a very special time of year, and while we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK, we believe that given the challenges we've faced in 2021, this year calls for a certain amount of gratitude and self-reflection as we look ahead to a new year.
In America we know, Thanksgiving is a time of year for gathering with friends and family, and celebrating all of the abundance which the year has brought. The holiday has its roots in a traditional harvest feast shared between America's early pilgrims and the indigenous population. It has long been viewed as a holiday in which people put aside their differences and celebrate being part of the same community.
The tradition calls for a turkey dinner and all the trimmings, not dissimilar from a Christmas dinner here in the UK, usually followed by a brisk walk outdoors. With the colder months having crept up on us, we know that there's is something deliciously comforting in enjoying a hearty meal with friends and family, before wrapping up warm and heading out for a walk in the countryside, or even exploring a nearby park. And what better way to feel cosy, than with luxurious natural fibre knitwear?
In celebration of this wonderful holiday, we've put together our Thanksgiving edit with some of our favourite knitwear to enjoy the day in, no matter what your plans are!
The Thanksgiving Edit
Autumnal toned colour palettes reflect the bountiful harvest mood and make for the perfect Thanksgiving suitable looks no matter what your plans are this holiday season.
Reflecting the golden tones of falling leaves, we love mustard yellow, burnt orange and deep earthy colours for this magical time of year.
Get cosy with a statement knitwear piece like our heavyweight cotton sweaters and super soft chunky merino wool knits, or layer up with our extra fine merino acting as a base layer to keep you feeling nice and toasty all day. Even if you end up braving freezing temperatures!
For those with a more minimal personal style, or who don't wish to wear brighter tones, many of favourite knits from this edit are also available in neutral tones and colours. But as the days and nights get darker and the cold weather draws in, why not add a pop of colour to brighten the mood and bring the festive spirit a little more?
