ϟ#245 Lochaven of Scotland Ravenclaw Cardigan.


Lochaven has sewn up the market in dressing Hollywood stars from the silver screen, most notably the "Harry Potter" blockbuster movies starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson to name but a few.
In 2001, Warner Bros. chose Lochaven to supply all the Hogwarts school cardigans, jumpers and tank tops worn by the cast and extras for the films in the Harry Potter series including those worn by Tom Marvolo Riddle in the retro flashback scenes. This relationship lasted until 2009 with the supply of clothing for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2. The changing styles throughout the film series was facilitated by access to Lochaven's vast design range which dates back to the 1950's.
So I've decided to buy The Ravenclaw Cardigan as wore Evanna Lynch & Katie Leung. Warning : On the website there is the "Harry Potter" & the "Harry Potter Licensed" categories, the licensed have a little crest with the name of the house on the cardigan & are more expensive, so choose the "Harry Potter" ones, they are less expensive & exactly the same as in the films ! Here are some pictures of me with it below. The Quality is supermassive for the price. It's handknitted & made in Scotland by the same people who worked on the films with à 100% wool garanty & it's very warm & sweet. I think I'll buy Gryffindor one in the future, but I keep my money for the WWOHP for the moment.
& here is some pictures of Evanna Lynch & Katie Leung wearing 
& a Woman sizing guide if you want to buy one 
(I usually wear L clothes but there I took 
a M one & it's still a little bit wide so watch out!)
