The Design

"Fine feathers."

A soft, cozy capelet, Plume drapes your shoulders with lovely colorwork feathers! Designed by Martin Storey for the Carousel collection, this short, practical poncho has a bell-like shape for a comfortable fit around your neck and shoulders and ribbing at the neck and hem for tidy edges.

Rowan Alpaca Soft DK—a DK-weight blend of merino and alpaca—creates a Plume that’s soft, yet sturdy, and oh, so comfy. Four-plied and with a snug spin, Alpaca Soft DK is lightweight, yet warm and bouncy. The firm drapey fabric has great stitch definition—and the solid, saturated shades show up crisply in colorwork motifs!
