{in-shuh} Irish: flood plain or water meadow.

At the base of the Inishowen Peninsula lies a magical place. A saltwater marshland, this modest looking network of meadows supports a thriving ecosystem of local plant and birdlife.

Inspired by this landscape, Inse is at once delicate and
 hardy, exuberant and simple. The lacework at the yoke evokes marshy wildflowers and brambles, with hints of the same motif accenting the cuffs and the split hem. 

Lightweight, versatile, and straightforward in its construction, Inse is a classic circular yoke pullover that is suitable 
for a variety of skill levels and ideal for four-season wear.
