Sizing Guide

Sizing of hand made garments is a constant challenge (or headache!).

Some styles are square shaped, others fitted, others just their own shape! 

Where possible we have given indications of the sizes with the descriptions of the items. More information will be added as we have more time to complete this. However we find any information on chest size and height that can be given on ordering, no matter how sparse the information, useful in helping us to choose the correct garment. Generally we will e-mail any customer who orders a fleece lined jacket for this information.

Many of our garments do vary within a size as do the size and shape of people. So if you have a special requirement i.e. long or short arms, long body, etc we will try and choose that special sized garment especially for you.

This also applies to our woollen accessories which are mainly hand knitted.

Gloves - small, large, man's, ladies, need extra room?

Hats - if you know you need a small size or would appreciate more space to accommodate a head of beautiful curls then it may be helpful to use a tape measure and take a measurement around your head, just above your eyebrows and the top of your ears will do nicely and make a note in the comments box when you place your order (cm or inches, we really don't mind).  If you want to surprise someone, place their old hat flat on a table and measure across - then double.  Again a quick note in the comments box and we will take it from there.

Please let us know - it all helps us to choose the most suitable sized item for you. Otherwise we will send out an average size!

There is a 'special instructions' box on checkout for any extra information to help us choose suitable sizes.

We also welcome enquiries from our customers regarding sizing. If you require more specific information please e-mail or telephone and we will forward the relevant information.
