Hand Printed Wool Challis
We like to do a small collection of wool challis ties for fall, and this year we’ve concentrated on a few Old English game prints: the traditional “flying pheasant” (in a slightly over-sized version), the very traditional “fly fishing”, and the not-seen-in-years “eagle and hare”. But what we wanted to mention here is that there are wools and then there are wools. The original wool challis was manufactured in Norwich in 1832 (the word derives from the Anglo-Indian word shalee, meaning soft). In that tradition, our wool challis has a reassuringly supple handle and ties a perfect knot. If you simply untie it at day’s end, roll it up over night, and then hang it up, it should provide years of dashing service to your autumn and winter wardrobe.
In two tipping styles; hand rolled (available in-store), and classic navy (online)
