Dove Cottage


Dove Cottage is a relaxed, drop-shoulder sweater with a playful band of colourwork around the bottom edge of the sweater and sleeves. Knitted in pieces using Lore, the lambswool blooms when washed to create a beautiful, harmonious fabric. The cosy funnel neck adds a modern touch and protects your neck from the Winter winds.
