An exclusive McIntosh knitting kit

Elegantly arching lines of cables decorate this jumper, knitted in FABULOUS DK - a hand-dyed BFL-silk blend by McIntosh.




This stitch pattern combines cables and texture to create a series of linked arches, and was inspired by an aerial view of river crossings by celebrated designer Emma Vining.

The garter stitch texture also adds a 3D element to each arch support. The lines of the extended lower rib flow in the upper pattern of cabled arches; the scale of the arches changes from elongated shapes in the sweater's mid section to smaller shapes for the upper section. 

This jumper is knit flat in the colour of your choice.

back of Glenfinnan jumper 


FABULOUS by McIntosh is a luxurious British wool composed of 55% British Bluefaced Leicester spun together with 45% Grade A Mulberry Silk and is accredited as a British Wool blend by British Wool.  

Knitting from a skein: wind each skein into a ball before knitting. We recommend leaving the wool in skein form until prior to knitting to protect the fibre tension.

Pattern: after purchase, you will be sent a copy of the pattern from The Knitter Magazine Issue 192 via Ravelry.

A note on colour: as yarn colours vary in different lighting conditions and electronic screens vary too, there may be a slight variation in the product colour. As all of our yarn is hand-dyed, each batch is as unique as you are. We recommend alternating between 2 skeins as you knit throughout the garment. 

Care instructions: hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry. 

Returns: we want you to be thrilled with McIntosh. If not, we will refund or change your yarn within 60 days.  Simple.
