Transitional seasons inspired the silhouette of this design. Whilst still being woolly and warm, side splits and slash neck design features allow cool breezes to penetrate the jumper on the warmer days, and still being able to layer up on the colder days of transition. The beautiful yarn is a hearty rustic wool.

There is a hidden depth of intricate cable within the colours and textures of the natural Hebridean fibre. Often being advised not to work cables in a dark yarn, I couldn’t resist the mystic behind this yarn.
