Stripes highlighted with specks of colour decorate this elegantly shaped jumper.

This jumper features waist shaping and an unusual curved front hem, which give a feminine look to the design.
The broken stripe pattern on the body combines navy and cream stripes with small squares and rectangles of bright colour.
It is knitted in a soft, bouncy yarn spun from rare-breed Border Leicester wool.
