The cheerful photo in turn triggered off memories of synthetic fleece jackets that I was so fond of wearing years ago when I lived in the country, as warmth was of the essence due to outdoor living. So I went in search of Blackfield Studio Clothing of whom I’d remembered was designer of said fleece jackets and the like. I was unsurprised to discover that the company was still in business in Achill Island, Co. Mayo, and still creating the quirky designed clothing that I absolutely adored in the past.
I linked a few of the designs via Twitter. They’re as cheerful looking in colour as the sheep above. The red hooded fleece one reminds me of a red polka – dot fleece throw over I purchased in Guiney’s in an exchange purchase. It was on sale, so I thought why not go all red because of the season that’s in it.
I should add, that fleece used in Blackfield jackets, ponchos, hats & scarves are made only from highest quality synthetic fleece material.
I discovered that Blackfield fleece clothing designer was German. Maybe she got Celtic bias binding idea from German traditional clothing?
What I particularly liked about Blackfield fleece jackets were Book of Kells/Celtic bias binding edges. Reminded me of Swiss edelweiss edges
