Needles entwine threads of silk, steel, and wool, wrapping and weaving - their own glistening and shimmering created, catching the light. A silk bow, soft and elegant, to tie it all together. Sleeveless and long, to be worn over a fine wool knit or cotton t-shirt, or worn on it’s own with fine wool trousers, slouched and elegant, loose and gathered
