The Titus Vintage Collection

The Titus Vintage Collection features four hand-picked vintage sweater designs from the archives of historic Yorkshire knitting company Sirdar. Alison Moreton has reworked these designs to fit the modern woman using the latest techniques and created three accessories inspired by the vintage designs, all knitted in our stunning Titus yarn.
