Very warm thick wool - like wearing a blanket!

Size guide:
104cm wide
85cm long, including tassels

This is a very good quality poncho hand-knitted using a slightly coarse, thick and very warm heavyweight lambswool. It can feel slightly prickly or itchy against the neck which is easily overcome by wearing a fleece with a collar beneath or a buff.

It's very easy to wear and so warm - just pull it over the head and feel as though you're wrapped in a thick, warm, snuggly blanket. It's perfect for lounging on the sofa indoors or around a bonfire outdoors on the coldest night (mine was tested in snow). Being fairly rugged, rather than a fashion item, it's ideal for outdoor wear, leisurely walks and days out, can withstand a light shower is quite rugged and will last for many years.

I'm a slim size 12 and find the size very comfortable. It doesn't feel as though it's hanging loose, isn't baggy and isn't constrictive either. The hood is a generous size and the patterned edging can be rolled back if preferred. (Note: it is not lined as described.)

Obviously, it isn't ideal for daily wear eg for doing housework(!) and isn't the most practical design for undertaking daily tasks but it is a delightfully snuggly warm layer for walking outdoors or lounging in cold weather. sitting beside a bonfire and it's hand-washable.
