Helmsdale reflects the influence of the Vikings on Scotland’s heritage, in one thoroughly up to date sweater. A pared down palette of just three striking colours ensures that this classic yoked cardigan style feels right for right now, and the fitted silhouette (with optional bust darts ensuring a perfect fit) works with your wardrobe.
