A GALASHIELS knitwear company is ready for winter.

And it is proving to still be top of the style stakes with the launch of its latest collection.

Fashion brand Eribé’s newest range of clothing and accessories has hit the shelves in time for the cold winter months.

The Netherdale-based knitwear design and micro-manufacturing company sells its wares in over 200 stores in 16 countries worldwide.

Now in its 32nd year, its knitwear is made using "hereditary skills" handed down from one generation to the next.

Founder Rosemary Eribé said: “We love blending colours that are harmonious and scrumptious: colours that are exciting, bright, not-easy-to-forget in our fast-moving world: colours that make you look younger and feel energised.

“So many people think they are not good with wearing colour, but we want to change that, and give them back confidence and that particular feeling that they might have forgotten: I will have this forever.”

The collection is made from natural yarns including lambswool, angora and alpaca blend, most of them spun in Scotland.

The newly launched items include sweaters, cardigans, hats and scarves and take inspiration from four winter “colour stories” in what the company describe as a broader “spectrum of colours than ever”.

“Vibrant colours” are included in their “fizz” collection, “rich blues and touches of whites” in their “oceans” palate, “ochres, russets and deep greens” are inspired by autumn and finally, “greys/whites with touches of pale hints of colours” in their “mist” collection.

On the newest collection, the company said: “With inspiration from their Scottish textile heritage of Fair Isle, lace and famous tweeds, the Winter 2018 collection is all about being unique.”

“The artistic blending of colours, yarns and knitting techniques offers something new.

“From lightweight lace and sporty garments in extra fine merino to the soft chunky tactile handknit textures, there is a knit for all occasions.”
