Highland Collection reversible beanie in a tweed effect yarn that's so tactile and soft against the skin. A versatile hat that can be worn many different ways, green or wine, or turn up a hem and have the two contrasting colours showing, the choice is yours.
Knitted with a fine merino, silk and nylon yarn that's light but warm and the added two layers traps the heat, keeping you warm without bulk.
Merino wool - Great for all year round, merino is one of my favourite yarns. Why I love merino wool - Light and airy, merino wool is a beautiful natural fibre, soft to the skin and it breathes naturally. Merino wool reacts to your body temperature, keeping you cool in hot weather and warm in cold weather, the perfect fibre.
Silk - silk is just luxury in a word and so comfortable to wear, it gives the poncho a lovely drape and alters the texture of the yarn to create a very tactile and soft to the skin poncho. It's also one of the strongest natural fibres and lightweight, breathable and hypoallergenic.
So, I couldn't resist knitting a poncho with these two beautiful fibres combined together with the durability of nylon makes this poncho an easy care garment.
This design was inspired by the colours and textures of the Scottish Highlands, from strong colours of seaweed clinging to the rocks on the shoreline to the beauty of the old croft houses sitting beneath blue skies.
