I was pleased to see that there were quite a few producers from the UK as well, which got me thinking about doing a snuggly pair of British wool Marzipants for Winter 2014. I also found the most scrumptious stripped jersey material, I do love a stripe at the moment & after incorporating them into our current limited edition Marzipants, I'm keen to get more and more and more stripes into the next range!

I'd need to sell the trousers for £1,000 to make a profit!!! Ho-hum, one day!
