Buy Irish Day 3: Amhain Creations

So far I have brought you gift ideas from Cork and Offaly and today I want to take you to Amhain Creations in Co Carlow. 

The Owner of Amhain Creations is Valarie Coleman.Valarie makes one off knitted and fabric items. Amhain (pronounced A-wah-in) is Irish for one. No two items in her shop will ever be the same, they are each unique in their own way. 

Valarie's mission is "To put colour into the world". I love her mission statement, the world needs more colour. Valerie comes up with her own designs and is also happy to take special requests on orders.

Amhain Creations Neck warmer €10

After taking part in this years Age Action Big Knit campaign I really have developed a new found respect for the art of knitting and cannot begin to comprehend how people create the things they do with wool and knitting needles. I think it's a fantastic skill and only wish I could knit more than mini hats and scarves! 

I was delighted to review this neck warmer from Valarie. It's beautiful, she certainly put colour into my world with the purple wool she chose to use. It's comfortable to wear and sits on my shoulders just perfectly. I am impressed with the quality of this product and have no doubt that it will keep my neck warm for many winters to come.

If you head over to her website you can also see her handmade 

Handmade one of a kind gifts are wonderful. Amhain creation items are just that and very practical too....baby it's cold outside!

You can also find Amhain creations on Facebook and Twitter

Do you know anyone in your family who would enjoy one of Valarie's creations this Christmas?
