VIVYEN is a light and elegant sweater that is perfect for the time between spring and summer. It is worked seamlessly from the top down starting with a beautiful yet simple to work, textured circular yoke that then transitions into a raglan style which gives this sweater a perfect fit.
VIVYEN is worked out of a soft and GOTS certified merino and cotton blend yarn that hasthe advantages of both fibers: On the one hand it is lovely to work with and blocks out nicely like a woollen yarn and on the other hand is very soft to the skin and has the lovely drape of cotton yarns.
