Although it might look intricate, our designers have used only two shades of yarn in any row, so it's not quite as tricky as it appears. Wear with a plain top to show off your knitting skills or a patterned blouse in similar shades for a sophisticated way to work the vest trend.

About This Yarn
Treat yourself or someone special to this luxurious blend of soft cashmere, smooth silk and extra fine merino wool. A dream to knit or crochet, the soft fibres feel as good as they look. A sumptuous palette of grown-up shades inspired by a grand old English estate is ideal for sophisticated womenswear..
What's it like to work with?
As rewarding to knit and crochet as it is to wear, the soft, plump stitches give crisp stitch definition to detailed colour-work and textured patterns.
What is it best for?
Makes up into a lightweight fabric with a beautiful drape, perfect for long-line cardigans, generous wraps and swinging ponchos as well as neat knits that add luxurious warmth without weight.
