New season sneak peek AW18

The first hints of autumn are beginning to show, the new school year is about to start, and it's officially time for me to share a few of my absolute favourites from the new collection with you.

I know I say this every year, but I really really love this season's collection. A/W clothes always feel so exciting to me - all the texture and rich colour - and this season's collection from Kettlewell is no exception. I've limited myself to a mere five favourites to share with you today, but I'm looking forward to sharing and styling lots more as the collection lands in the coming weeks.

I finally, after some prodding, received an answer from the German company that owns the Australian farms where your Merino is produced. They say the wool is from NON-mulesed sheep. Hooray. You might wish to put this information on the website since mulesing is increasingly controversial in terms of animal cruelty.

Kettlewell Colours: Thank you for this - we will certainly add this information to our Production and Ethics page.

Just read the comment about long sleeves, and it made me smile as I'm just the opposite! I'm short, with correspondingly short arms and legs, so long sleeves are a no-go for me. Pushing them up doesn't work as the cuffs go baggy. So I love the 3/4 sleeves. Being big-busted I also need deep v necks - crew necks, slash necks, and high round necks are no-go. I guess for you, a variety of shapes/styles is the answer so you can accommodate more of us! BTW am also allergic to wool, so cotton is the fabric for me!

Kind regards to the Kettlewell team, love the new models and colours! Will the Silky Crew Neck have also XS size? I hoped to buy them in bulk <3 V.H.

Kettlewell Colours: At the moment we have the Silky Roll Neck and the Silky Scoop in XS in some colours and we will be gradually introducing the Silky Crew in XS in the future. Hope this helps :-)

Looks fab, will the full AW 18/19 range be online by the end of today?

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Ellen, thanks for your comment! Yes, the new collection will be going live later today, happy shopping!

Deborah Ford on Aug 24, 2018 8:11 AM

Could you tell me when these can be ordered

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Deborah, the new collection will be online and ready to order by the end of today! Happy shopping!

Jane Whattam on Aug 24, 2018 7:46 AM

Can't wait to receive the new catalogue! I can already see two pieces I would like to buy!

Julie Martin on Aug 24, 2018 6:32 AM

As ever, I'm loving the colours. But disappointed as there does not appear to be anything to flatter the big busted short waisted body shape. The trade off, I guess, is that it keeps my credit card in check!

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Julie,

Many thanks for your feedback! Please do stayed tuned as this is only a snippet of the new collection, so hopefully you will find something you like :)

Hope Grace Bailey on Aug 23, 2018 8:36 PM

are you ever going to get us 3x clothes? I love the stuff you have but none will fit :(

I am a fall / autumn

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Hope,

Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback! I will certainly pass your suggestions onto our designers.

Kathryn Painter on Aug 23, 2018 5:45 PM

Will you be stocking any cotton or viscose jumpers this year as I cannot wear any type of wool as it brings me out in a rash. I know this is a problem for a lot of ladies who find wool just too itchy. Many thanks.

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Kathryn,

Thanks for your comment, and I'm sorry to hear you have a problem with our wool styles, I will pass this onto our designers. Unfortunately this time our main knitwear collection is merino wool, however, do have a look at the Monaco Stripe Top, which is a light sweater weight and made from 100% cotton! Hope this helps :)

STC on Aug 23, 2018 5:33 PM

Can you advise where your merino wool is from, please, and whether it comes from non-mulesed sheep?

Kettlewell Colours: Hi! Please have a look at our production & ethics page for details on our merino wool: https://www.kettlewellcolours.co.uk/about-us/production-and-ethics

Hilary F-Miller on Aug 23, 2018 3:55 PM

Yes they are good but such a pity everything is sooooo short, apart from the long jumper of course.

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Hilary,

Thank you for your feedback! Stay tuned as this is just a taster of the new collection, hopefully you will find something you like :)

Andrene Dickins on Aug 23, 2018 2:45 PM

Love the tartan dress x

Susie on Aug 23, 2018 2:30 PM

Being a new customer please could you send me your new brochures as and when they come out please.I did receive a spring one last wk. Your brand is my new favourite I can't tell you how fab it is to be able to buy clothing in my colour spectrum that being a spring natural ingenue. Many thanks 😊

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Susie,

Thanks so much for your kind feedback! As you are already a customer of ours, you should automatically receive our catalogues. However, if you don't receive one by the end of next week, give us a call on 01460 279800 and we will sort this out for you. :)

Patricia Tabbernor on Aug 23, 2018 12:01 PM

Love the animal print! Have you considered a petite range? I love your stuff and have quite a few pieces, but petite would be much better for me, there are a lot of petite people out there. X

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Patricia,

Thanks for your feedback - glad you like it! We have only recently introduced the XS size so are waiting to see the response on this at the moment. I will pass your suggestion on to the design team :)

Helen Corder on Aug 23, 2018 10:31 AM

My first thought is 'oh no more of those annoying sleeves that aren't long enough!!' Please do more proper long sleeves for chilly mortals like me - people can always push them up.

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Helen,

Thanks for sending us your feedback, I will certainly pass it on for you!! We do aim to provide a range of different sleeve lengths to cater for everyone, however keep your eyes peeled as this is only a small selection of the whole collection :)

Jane bennett on Aug 23, 2018 9:36 AM

Looks fab. Can't wait. X

Julia on Aug 23, 2018 8:58 AM

Love the look of the tartan dress and leopard faux wrap... be still my beating heart!

Angie Rowell on Aug 23, 2018 7:46 AM

Love love love the leopard print!! Can't get enough of it. Will def be buying some of these!!

Beth on Aug 23, 2018 6:21 AM

What is merino wool made up of. My skin is sensitive to wool I avoid buying anything with a wool mix. I was wondering if I could wear this material. Thank you x

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Beth,

Thanks for getting in touch. Our main knitwear collection is 100% Merino Wool this season, however we do recommend layering our 'silky' styles underneath these. They are super soft and create a 'second skin' specially designed to wear underneath jumpers and wraps. We also have a Knitted (100%) Cotton Dress coming in which may be of interest to you :)

Pat Anscombe on Aug 23, 2018 1:35 AM

Love the v neck merino wool sweaters but can't wear wool. What's the answer?

Kettlewell Colours: Hi Pat,

Thanks for your feedback. Sorry to hear of your dilemma! We do recommend layering our 'silky' styles underneath these, as they are super soft and create a 'second skin' specially designed to wear underneath jumpers and wraps. You might also like the Monaco Stripe Top, which is a light sweater weight and made from 100% cotton, or our new Knitted (100%) Cotton Dress! Hope this helps :)

Celia Smith on Aug 22, 2018 10:45 PM

Really hoping the tartan dress comes in XS !

Susan Middleton on Aug 22, 2018 10:40 PM

Would love to see a denim style jacket in autumn colours also the soft gold/old gold roll neck top

Jane chiverton on Aug 22, 2018 10:27 PM

Brilliant so far!!

JOAN Fyda on Aug 22, 2018 10:21 PM

Like the Tartan dress .prob . too short for me .unfortunately . Most dresses I like are made just too short .

Diane Chalmers on Aug 22, 2018 9:32 PM

Am loving the tartan and leopard prints! Can't wait to see the spring versions.

Lucia Andreucetti on Aug 22, 2018 8:21 PM

Can't wait for the rest of the range! The suede jacket will be my first purchase!

Angela Wilson on Aug 22, 2018 8:15 PM

Looks great and lots of Autumn colours!

Gina price on Aug 22, 2018 8:14 PM
