Pattern Description:

Designed by Marly Bird.

Imagine an 18th century healer grinding away spices, herbs and seeds with her mortar and pestle in the surgery of her cold castle and it is easy to visualize her also wearing this casual and cosy oversized cowl and wristlets/fingerless mitts. The Apothecary set is not only functional but fashionable for the 18th century and today. The witch, Geillis, or the healer, Claire, would find this set perfect for their particular needs.
