Aranaranja brings you the futuristic style of Fubarite at an aran gauge.
Alpaka Walk, a vibrant felted alpaca/merino blend from Dibadu, creates an extravagantly plush stand-up turtleneck. The cording below the waist is quietly understated, yet holds its own against the bold, textured cuffs and provides vertical detailing to contrast with the horizontal lines of the cuffs and collar. The citrussy orange colour will brighten any day. And, just for fun, there is a contrasting hidden lining.
The cording allows you to sneak in extra increases for a more relaxed fit, and instructions on how to achieve this are supplied.
