Our Detta Luxury Felted Wraps are made entirely from 100% lambswool by hand in our studio on our vintage Moretto Dubied 4gauge knitting machine. Our knitted lambswool wraps are handmade and are soft, warm and luxurious – like nothing you will have seen anywhere else.
These knitting machines were used extensively in industry for hundreds of years, up until the end of the last century, when they were mostly replaced by fully programmable electronic machines. These manual skills were lost to industry and are now taught only in selected universities and some knitting schools.
At Detta, we value the artisan skills involved in making items using these machines and so everything we knit is powered by hand alone. Our Knitted Felted Wraps are over 600 rows long and when finished, measure 500mm wide by approximately 1.8m long and our Large Knitted Heritage Wraps measure 900mm wide by approximately 2m long.
They are knitted, hot washed until they are felted, then steamed and packaged beautifully in our branded Detta box so they can be kept and handed down as keepsakes, or given as a beautifully presented gift.
