Somerset knitwear designer Lyn Holland produces beautiful, colourful and sumptuous hand crafted fashion accessories here in England. The new creations from Studio Uccello are the result of a life time spent working with textiles and yarns. In the past Lyn has designed and sold to prestigious stores including Bloomingdales and Saks in the USA and more locally to Mulberry here in the UK. A deep appreciation of natural forms combined with her mastery of stitch and fibre craft has inspired her current original collections of scarves, hats and mittens. These unique items combine the knitted stitch with crochet, nuno felting and bead embellishment.
The luxury yarns used by Lyn are spun from 100% natural fibres and the majority are hand dyed in the UK. Browse through the stunning collections for an exciting addition to your wardrobe that you’ll be proud to own and be eager to wear, or treat someone special to a lovely gift.

The beautiful luxurious mohair yarns used in the Strata and Wild n’ Woolly collections come from
a well loved flock of angora goats residing in west Wales.
Some of the yarns are pure kid mohair and others
a blend of 90% mohair and 10% blue faced Leicester wool. In Flower Fields a fibre blend of baby camel and silk is used.
All are carefully dyed by hand in small batches therefore making each item unique and subtly different in colour. The nuno felting used in the Wild n’ Woolly collection is made from 100% merino wool and is painstakingly made by hand. This unusual combination of hand knitting and felting with the addition of bead decoration ensures that no two pieces will ever look quite the same.
In order to keep your Studio Uccello creation looking its best please wash it carefully by hand in warm soapy water and allow it to dry flat. Reshape whilst still damp.
