Valley Yarns Benton Cherry is a lightweight and luxurious poncho perfect for layering as seasons transition. Valley Yarns Southampton combines a silk core with a fluffy mohair halo that creates a soft, fluffy fabric that’s a dream to wear. This poncho is knit flat in two pieces from the bottom up and seamed at the shoulders and sides with neck and armband trims picked up and worked in the round during finishing. Benton Cherry is knit in sections of single and double strands of Southampton, creating translucent and more opaque stripes that add an extra touch of style.
