Introducing Niamh O'Neill Fine Knitwear
The Niamh O'Neill fine knitwear story began when we wished for a soft, elegant option to go with our beautiful full skirts.
We wanted to introduce a fitted top which was very flattering, comfortable and versatile. We also knew it had to be extra special for our customer.
We began to explore the world of luxury knitwear and decided that because of the expertise, beautiful finishes and long tradition of producing knitwear, Italy was the place to find our producer.
We have been working with our knitwear producer, in Florence, Italy, since July 2015 and have sampled a range of 100% cashmere and cashmere mix sweaters. The first item from this range is the "Florence Fine Knit" (named after it's place of conception!). The Florence Fine Knit is made using a luxury Italian yarn which is 60% merino, 30% silk and 10% cashmere. The merino and silk ensure that the sweater is fine and slinky, whilst the cashmere adds a soft, buttery feel to the yarn.
We love to add a little surprising element to all our designs. This is where the gorgeous feminine frill cuff steps in! This contrast navy detail is utterly fun and flirty and gives the knit day to evening appeal.
The Florence Fine Knit has a form-fitting style, making it perfect for tucking in to skirts and trousers. There are two gorgeous colours to choose from this season, blue with navy trim and pink with navy trim.
