Vellamo Sweater – Francesca Hughes

£7.00

Vellamo is a super fun lightweight cropped jumper. The perfect weight and warmth for all year round. The boxy shape makes it wearable with almost anything, and long set in sleeves maintain a smart tailored look. Knit in pieces from the bottom up it’s a modern twist on the traditional jumper. The wavy motif and triangle shapes on the sleeves are simple and memorable repeats, inspired by the shapes that mean water and fire. The sleeves are in garter stitch which create a warm and squishy layer.

 The Organic Summer Wool by CaMaRose would make an excellent choice for that project as it offers a wide range of colourways that can easily be matched. 

Studio Donegal Darnie and Retrosaria Mondim would also be very good options.
