Competition Time - Made to Order Winners announced

Imagine being able to choose the colours of  your own jacket, wrap or poncho... there was a time when Made to Order was a service we would have loved to offer but couldn't as we didn't get nearly enough colours of cashmere through the door. All that has changed in the last few years. The support we've had from our growing group of Friends of Turtle Doves has meant that we have been able to buy increasing amounts of pre-loved cashmere and this means that now we really do have a never-ending rainbow of colours available.

We love the challenge of making bespoke orders and we often get inspiration from the colour mixes that customers request. 

So, this week were're offering you the chance to win one of three made to order products worth £109, a poncho, a wrap or a jacket in your very own colourway!

We have been re-working cashmere for nearly 10 years now and in our experience choosing three shades which complement or clash is the best recipe. If you'd like some inspiration here's a blog I wrote a while ago about making magic with colours and you can see all the products we offer on a Made to Order basis by clicking here.

So, all you have to do to enter is email your three chosen colours, and the product you'd like made, to us at and we'll enter you into the competition. You can just write the colour names or send us pictures of what you mean if the shades require it - after all, colour is hugely subjective.

We'll look at every entry and announce the winners on Friday 7th June. As usual with this sort of thing the judges decision will be final... we may run the competition again though so keep your eyes peeled in future if you're not one of the lucky ones.

We only offer Made to Order outside our busy winter season so if you fancy treating yourself to something we've made a 10% Off Made to Order discount code to use until Sunday 16th June at midnight.

Competition Results:

So, we spent several hours looking through hundreds of great colour combinations and between us we have managed to whittle the list down to some worthy winners. We were so touched by the quality and volume of the entries that we we had to add more prizes!

After much deliberation we chose 4 winners of a made to Order garment; 2 special commendations who win a Made to Order Loop and 10 runners up who will win a pair of Turtle doves Gloves in one of the colours they suggested. We'll look forward to sharing photographs of the prize garments with you once they are made up. All winners will also be emailed separately tomorrow. Here's the list: 

Christine Underwood - Colours of Summer Jacket
Maxine Almond - Dark Red, Dark Green & Lime Poncho
Sarah Goddard - Sage Green, Dusky Plum & Charcoal Poncho
