The wide cable on each side of the front, which also forms a lovely collar at the neck, helps to give the jacket the slightly thick, soft and luxurious feel. The cable is two-sided, that is, it is equal to the front and back, so that what is shown by the back of the cable is as pretty as the front. The same double-sided cable is at the bottom of the sleeves, which makes it easy to fold up the braid edge if you wish.
The jacket in the photo is knitted with one thread Shelter, Brooklyn tweed and one thread Tilia, Filcolana. I love the rustic look that the Shelter wool yarn gives, while the Mohair yarn Tilia, makes the jacket even more comfortable and soft. But as mentioned further down, the options are many when it comes to yarn choices, depending on the type of expression desired.
The jacket comes in 7 sizes. The jacket is slightly folded in and is designed with a positive ease of 14 cm above the chest.
