Skye Jacket in Sleet Merino Wool from Bill Baber
Knitted in wonderfully soft merino wool, the Skye Jacket is a superb addition to the collection bringing some winter warmth while still carrying elegance and classic style.
This Merino Donegal yarn carries a rich scatter of cooler fleck throughout each of the main colors used. If you look closely in each one you will see tiny naps of contrasting and complementary colors which add vibrancy to the finished garment while also harking back to long gone traditional techniques of yarn spinning.
Easy to wear, this is a loose fitting style with reversible cuffs which allow you to fold back and shorten the sleeves. There are no buttons or fastening so simply wear it open or you can pair with a brooch pin to the fasten the jacket.
Each piece is made in the Grassmarket in Edinburgh, Scotland.
We recommend a gentle hand wash in cool water, or dry clean. Merino wool is long lasting and soft to the touch, but really doesn’t like to be machine washed at high temperatures or tumble dried.
Made from 100% soft merino wool.
Small approximately 6 - 8 US
Medium approximately 10-12 US.
Please note the measurements are recorded averages from garments knitted previously. Your item is likely to fall inside these range but we cannot be precise. Knitting is a little like baking, no two cakes are the same!
Bill Baber is a boutique business. They knit each piece to order and understand that you want the best fit possible. Please note that wool and linen are flexible types of yarn and therefore there are variations in average measurements.
