The fuzzy texture of our Minou yarn makes even the simplest projects stand out. Worked using two colors, the Feathered Vest is a fabulous layering piece for the autumn and winter seasons. Light as a feather, but warm thanks to the blend of baby alpaca and wool in Minou, this simple garment is one you’ll wear again and again. Pair it with a button-up shirt underneath for a polished look, or just wear it on its own for a casual day out.
