As a fully paid up Welsh person, I was already in love with Mabli‘s merino wool childrenswear, which blends heritage Welsh tapestry blanket patterns and weaves with fresh contemporary colours. The label was launched in late 2016 by founder Lisa Roberts, a former women’s knit designer and mama to Mabel and Otto. The ethos behind the brand is one of slow fashion, using high-quality materials and ethical production, meaning that clothing lasts longer and can be handed down for generations.
Now I have all the heart eyes for their spring/summer collection of pima cotton and linen designs – traditional styles are given a modern twist with pops of colour and interesting detail. My stand-out items in the range are undoubtedly the Blodyn knee socks, perfect for the changeable weather at this time of year. They look fabulous and, at £12.50 a pair, make a sweet gift. And, best of all, they are made in Wales.
