Harewood Hap
Named after one of the traditional woods used in parquet and inlay flooring, this striking hap combines two very different yarns with the intarsia technique. The inherent push and pull of the chevrons slowly shift the stitch columns in unexpected directions, creating a truly dramatic fabric. The hap’s surface design belies the inherent simplicity of its shape and construction - a straightforward and infinitely wearable lengthwise rectangle.
