Rowan’s Felted Tweed gives this iconic South American ruana a cross-continetal twist. The simplicity of the form- two separate fronts that join at the shoulder to complete the back- puts the focus squarely on the four repeating Fair Isle stripes. Seed stitch finishes the edges, ensuring the elegant draping.
