Prounced KEITH-LEE, Keighley is a town in Yorkshire. It's home to East Riddlesden Hall, a filming location in the heart of Brontë country that crops up time and time again in period film and television. These mitts are so named for those adaptations, which are so often crammed with beautiful examples of handknits.
