Knits With an Acid Twist

Here's a squeamish fashion fact - in the olden days natural dyes for textiles such as wool used urine to bind the colour. Apparently the ammonia in stale urine was really good for lifting those dull beiges and whites into the rainbow. We're pretty sure science has advanced in recent years so don't be reaching for the hand cleanser straightaway. Instead, why not have a gander at some of our favourite colourful, and modern, knits in the shops.

Penneys, graphic, and for only €19? Yes, please.


Personal life goal - own?a Bella Freud jumper. Second personal life goal - find €270.
