A lightweight and oh, so comfy boho tunic. Soft and light enough to wear on its own or over a t-shirt. Inspired by the ripples of water, a wavy pattern in contrasting colours.
I'm obsessed with water, from the ebb and flow of the tide reaching the seashore, to the sparkling movement of ripples in a pool on a summers day. I wanted to inccorporate the movement into a knitwear design and after many trials and amends I managed to get a design that I was proud of.
Knitted with a luxury merino and silk mix yarn, with speckles of colours flecked through it. Not only is it comfortable to wear it's machine washable too.
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.
