ragamuffin loves...flax!

We've just had our first new collection of the year from Flax and it is gorgeous! We have a lovely neutral capsule collection called "Traveller" which would take you round the world and back in six key pieces and includes the always popular Flood pants - this time in a lovely heavy hopsack style linen. We also have a spring linen group in lovely smushy shades of berry and smokey blue - very pretty! Here is a sneaky peak of a jacket from the traveller group but if you fancy it, get it's almost sold out already! Lots more to come - we'll keep you posted (no pun intended!)

ragamuffin loves...clever ideas!

We had a customer in the other day who bought twelve of these cute little tin buckets. Obviously we asked her what she was going to do with them all? The favours! We thought it was such a lovely idea we took a quick pick of some blue ones filled with marshmallows! It would work so well for wedding favours or for little Easter gifts. Best all of, the little buckets are now only £1 in our sale and come in red, blue or pale pink...hurry they are selling fast!

ragamuffinloves...crafty devils!

This gorgeous scarf is made by our industrious friends in the Skye shop! They've been finger-knitting their little fingers to the bone to make these beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that tie in so wonderfully with our knits and linens.Great simply draped over the shoulders; minimal effort for maximum impact!

ragamuffin loves...a winter stroll!

What a gorgeous day here in Edinburgh - just perfect for wrapping up in lots of layers and going for a walk! Karoline has put together this gorgeous ensemble complete with a chunky Lorry Marshall cardigan on top and a tweed beanie hat from studio donegal! Just add a pair of cosy boots and you're good to go!

The poor girls on the Isle of skye haven't seen the sun for a few days now...the landscape looks very dramatic though - like a beautiful twilight world!

ragamuffin loves...gorgeous textures!

We don't know how to choose just one of these lovely scarves, they're just so beautiful! All the ragamuffin girls have at least one, it's true, they're big and scrunchy yet warm and light to wear. They're a riot of colour, made from antique saris, and hand stitched all over through two lovely layers of silk.

We just loved this stack of fine wool shawls, again a really good size, but light as a feather...
Mmm... maple syrup with those, anyone?

ragamuffin loves...the New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Gosh it is so windy and blustery in Edinburgh and chilly and snow capped on Skye but we are full of New Year cheer! We're already looking forward to spring and have done a bold, daffodil yellow display in anticipation! We've already had a couple of spring/ summer deliveries - some gorgeous cotton and silk crinkle pieces from Privatsacchen and a small drop of the ever popular Kearse and Boys lambswool coats and jackets. Our sale is still in full swing so there are lots of bargains to be had - perfect if you want to cheer up your wardrobe without breaking the bank!
