Lily Cole's no stranger to the runway, the silver screen, the Dean's Honor List, or the front lines of environmental activism, but she's adding one more gem to her glimmering resume: Advocate of North Yorkshire sheep. She and model-chum Katherine Poulton teamed up with Central Saint Martins alumni Alice Ashby and animal rights-conscious designer Isobel Davies to produce a line of hand-dyed, ethical knitwear. Hark, The North Circular was born—a collaboration of high-fashion prowess and old-school sentiment to produce woolen creations hand-knitted by local grannies. Available exclusively through the company's website, each knit-to-order piece is made from the wool of rescued Wensleydale sheep. And while you're biting your nails waiting for it to arrive, you can check your order's status on the local knitters' blog. How cute is that?
