The Dorothy Days is a colourful, modern knitwear company founded by Rachel and Jamie and based in Cornwall. Jamie works in television all around the world and often in harsh conditions. "Our knitwear came as a result of Jamie wanting a hat which would be suitable when he was filming. He wanted it to be practical and also stylish, suitable in different weather conditions and long lasting. So we created our range of knitwear for The Dorothy Days"
Knitting with 100% wool - Merino and Shetland, The Dorothy Days create knitted hats and knitwear inspired by the colours of nature and ready for your next adventure.
What is your earliest creative memory?
Earliest creative memory was with my Mum. She always really encouraged us to be creative and to enjoy it as something fun to do. We spent our childhood with big sheets of brown paper making drawings and paintings. For Jamie, it was at pre-school where he enjoyed creating pictures and paintings.
What fires your imagination?
Nature hugely inspires us and fires our imagination. We are really inspired by the colours of nature which is why we have such a huge range of colours. We have everything from burnt orange for the autumn leaves to pastel yellow for the spring flowers. Creative ideas often come to us at the strangest times and we have a notepad where we jot down ideas. It is often on long walks where we have time to think it through and then make that idea become a reality.
What Super Seconds deals should we look out for from you?
We have lots of Super Seconds Festival deals coming up - we will be selling our samples, colour combination experiments and seconds too. We will have lots of knitted hats from newborn to adult at 50% off and we will also be launching some of our new knitwear too which will also be at bargain prices so watch out for headwarmers and scarves!
