Sand and Stone

Sand and Stone Sand and Stone



In the desert, sun plays on sand and stone, creating many tones and moods. Depending on the time of day, colours are heightened or simply washed out.

The Sand and Stone shell plays with these features, allowing the colours of two coordinating handpainted yarns to work their light-filled magic. Deliberately over-sized, this top has plenty of positive ease, making it a comfortable garment to wear over a camisole or shirt.

The sample pictured is Size Medium and is knit with Hand Maiden Fine Yarn Flaxen, 65% silk, 35% linen, (250 m./273 yds. per 100 g.), colours “Wheat” and “Sweet Tea”.
