A poncho makes a nice alternative to a coat at this time of year, and it’s the kind of garment you’ll continue to wear into the autumn and winter, too. This roll-neck design has striking cable panels on the front and back, paired with braids along the side panels where the shaping is worked, and is finished with a tasselled edging.
It has been knitted in a chunky-weight yarn from Bergère de France, called Merinos Alpaga. It’s a luxurious blend of alpaca and merino wool from the Arles region of France; it comes in nine soft colours.
