Thistledown has all the warmth of wool with the feather-softness of kid mohair and silk. With the DK yarn weight and a loose to oversized fit, this pullover is a great piece for layering. A subtle striping detail at the neckline along with two bold stripes at each cuff give this garment a varsity or collegiate feel. Thistledown can be made to match your loved one’s school colors, making it a perfect gift for the autumn start of a new school year.
Thistledown is designed with a shallow V-neck but also includes instructions for a deeper V. This sweater is intended to be worn with 4 to 8” of positive ease. It is meant to be loose fitting (4 to 6" positive ease) or oversized (6"+ positive ease); however, you can easily size down to a classic fit (2 to 4") (just be sure to check the size chart before you begin).
