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.
