Let's Celebrate Wool Week!

To celebrate National Wool Week 2011 (5th-11th September), I thought I'd showcase some gorgeous pieces of hand knitted jewellery by Anna Alicia who I discovered this week via Tea For Joy. Anna uses Fair Trade organic cotton for all her jewellery, with vintage elements wherever possible, to make her jewellery as ethical and environmental as possible, both of which I think add to the charm. My absolute favourite piece is this pale peach 'Double Eagle' knitted necklace, the colour is just so pretty.
All of Anna's designs come beautifully gift wrapped in a cute box so would make a perfect present for someone. The 'Double Eagle' design comes in six colours; pale peach, pale grey, dusk blue, black, off-white and navy, as seen below.
Like what you see? There are more designs in her collection. What about this cute 'Owl' number?
Or the chunky 'Braid' design?
And finally this 'Moth' design is also a stunner. Isn't the texture of the knitted wool so lovely? Perfect for the Autumn season. With so many to choose from, which one will you go for?
 The Campaign for Wool was initiated by the Prince of Wales in an attempt to overcome the challenges facing the wool industry in Britain today. There are various events happening across the UK during this year's Wool Week, to find out more visit The Campaign for Wool website.

In the words of Vivienne Westwood wool is ''one of the world's great natural fibres, famous for it's versatility and comfort'' and if it's good enough for her then it's good enough for us too.
