Holme cashmere sweater - Colour Terra
100% Cashmere - Organic & Plant dyed
This long, narrow fitting style has a high, slender neck, and features chunky flared cuffs, worn long to peep out from Autumn coat-sleeves. It takes it's name and shape from the famous Danish glass high necked Holmegaard glass vases. A technical feat, it is knit on 2 separate gauges chunky 4-ply for the big rib cuffs, then transferred to a fine gauge 2-ply for the body, resulting in big drama ribs grazing the knuckles while the rest is elegantly slender.
The colour is a really special Plant Dyed cashmere the focal point of this Coral Strand collection. The yarn is from one of Italy's top cashmere mills; Cariaggi. Having their own herd they were able to harvest the best 100% organic pure white cashmere and then dye it naturally with plants. This shade is dyed with Madder root - a plant historically important in the natural dyes of ancient European civilisations.
The result is an extra soft, dusty terracotta, with a vintage vibe.
Early November we will also have this Holme style in 2 more colours: Drift & Black.
