Soane Using Rowan Cashmere Tweed
The Soane capelet is just the pretty, feminine piece to slip on over an autumn frock. Long, twirling cables take turns between lines of eyelet lace for a delightful, all-over texture. A split on one side provides mobility while Soane hugs your shoulders, and its generous size can make a lovely, chunky cowl scrunched around your neck.
Soane is knit in Rowan’s DK-weight Cashmere Tweed. This yarn has all the warm woolliness of our favorite tweed, but with a softness that can only be achieved with cashmere. It’s a blend of 80% wool and 20% cashmere with a lofty, 2-ply twist. And we so love Cashmere Tweed’s liberally flecked color palette of earthy neutrals and warm jewel tones, we might need a capelet in each shade!
