Modern Wrapper Project - Rowan Valley Tweed / Kidsilk Haze Version

Modern Wrapper Project - Rowan Valley Tweed / Kidsilk Haze Version

"Thoughtful details and a comfy fit."

The Modern Wrapper walks the line between cozy and chic, snuggly and sleek. It’s an oversized piece designed to flatter every body. Thoughtful details help it fit well and stay on the shoulders in a softly draping fabric. Wear it around the house, or dress it up a little for town. (Here, Kate wears her Wrapper closed with a JUL Mountain Sheep shawl stick.) We knit it on nice, big needles for lush drape and a quick knit.

We knit this version in two stunning yarns from Rowan—woolly Valley Tweed (Rowan’s newest fiber and a more than suitable substitute for Fine Tweed) and silky stand-by Kidsilk Haze. These two fibers—one a tweedy, 100% Shetland wool sport-weight and the other a lace-weight blend of super kid mohair and silk—meld together for a truly marvelous fabric. Tweedy flecks are softened by the light fuzz of mohair for a deep, handsome look that we can’t get enough of!
