Nothing much to contribute here. An arran jumper, submariner and a scarf. I have a cashmere watchcap and a half dozen lightweight turtlenecks I wear to the office in winter.

Nice woolen clothing shown here! I love wool. I had to stand for a day's watch in hours long rain with a huge loden blanket thrown over me and my head. Was surprised when coming into the camp tent for warming up to find I was completely dry underneath. I have norwegian and icelandic wool sweaters, some old military wool trousers, said loden blanket and I think over a hundred (!) hand knitted woolen socks... I must do a socks picture tomorrow. They were all made by my mother in law who is a knitting addict and I lack the courage to say "no, thanks, I have enough". Now she went so far to even ask me to bring those with holes in 'em so she can mend them. She can not believe, that I will never have to worry about re-supply when I look into my socks drawers. 15 years of being married and I had to buy extra drawers just because of her.
I am able to build wooden houses beginning with the standing trees, but how someone can knit socks that function in a speed like that is beyond my imagination. I tried hard but failed miserably.

Very cool, and really looking forward to seeing your socks army! :)
I came a bit away from wool over last years but am about to switch my wardrobe to more natural stuff, also fair produced and if possible and natural dyed...

Very nice Arran and Submariner pix! I could not yet convince myself going for natural color wool, always think this will make Me appear too pale. On you that looks quite good, especially combined with the Barbour. Who knows, one sunny day I’ll run into one on holidays. :)

Will add some more stuff soon.

Cheers
