  • Welanna - Cardigan

    Welanna is the perfect combination of a stand-out design and wearability. Inspired by the soaring of seagulls overhead, this cardigan is perfect for layering – throw in on to warm up after a dip in the sea or over a breezy summer dress.

    Welanna is worked from the top down, flat, with compound raglan increases for an outstanding fit. The deep V-neck transitions into a boxy, slightly cropped body with a stunning cable running down the center of the back. The increasing cable is echoed on the sleeves that flare out for a dramatic, yet wearable finish.
