Butterflies adorn this generous cowl, in the shape of a lace pattern divided by a rib. A rich melange brown color has been created by combining the pure wool of Huldra Kamgarn by Hifa with the tonal alpaca mixture of Dreamline Should by Du Store Alpakka. A tweed belt made for the Gyda jacket introduces the brown shade together with farmblue Ask - Hifa 2. The belt, just like the jacket, has bespoke buttons by Siri Berrefjord.
