Gretel - Isager Plant Fibre Version

Gretel - Isager Plant Fibre Version

"Quick, versatile and very flattering."

The Cocoknits Gretel is a draped-neck tank that's fun to knit and a pleasure to slip on. Working with Isager Plant Fiber produces a casual, semi-sheer tank top that looks terrific under a jacket or cardigan, or layered over a cami or summery tee. The A-line shape is very flattering, the neckline design is feminine and the piece is knit seamlessly, so you'll be done in no time.

Spun in Italy, Isager Plant Fibre is a blend of ramie, bamboo and hemp. Ramie’s bast fibers, like linen, are slightly resistant to dye, which creates a gorgeous, slightly muted color palette with a natural sheen. The bamboo enhances that sheen and adds a silky drape. And hemp, nature’s strongest fiber, adds strength and a softness that only increases with washing. With a hand between linen and cotton that feels light against the skin, this tank is sure to be a summer staple.
