Wold Poncho Using Rowan Valley Tweed
The Wold Poncho, designed by Lisa Richardson for the Valley Tweed Collection, is an excellent layer for tramping across windy moors. The intriguing, textured body of this poncho gracefully drapes around you, while a deep, ribbed turtleneck promises extra warmth.
Wold is stunning knit up in Rowan Valley Tweed. Light, strong, and hardy, Valley Tweed has just the right amount of woolliness. It’s spun from 100% wool (one thread of which is lambswool). The sweeping landscape of Yorkshire inspired those richly flecked earth and jewel tones.
