I love being outside, exploring and having adventures. But I’m also really in favour of being comfortable and cozy while on my expeditions. I designed Gilwell to be practical and simple, the perfect extra layer to snuggle against a strong breeze. The extra-long sleeves can be folded up or left long for warmth. The body is a comfy, boxy shape that can be thrown over any outfit for hiking up a mountain or relaxing by the campfire. I chose Hudson Worsted, a sturdy, super soft Merino/yak blend for comfort, whether you’re wearing it over a tank or woolen long underwear. It’s ideal for a chunky, luxurious layer that can be worn right next to the skin.

Gilwell is part of a collection done in collaboration with The Yarn Collective. You can see other pattterns from the Yarn Collective here.
