Camellia is a long sleeve, scoop neck sweater knitted in Studio Linen. The stocking stitch body softly gathers into a decorative rib stitch yoke and sleeves.
Studio linen is made from 100% linen. 85% is recycled rayon-linen fibre sorted from selected wastage and then regenerated with the eco-friendly hydrolysis method. It is then blended with 15% premium natural linen to create a fibre which is cool to the touch and which, when knitted, has a beautiful natural drape. Linen naturally softens with wear and washing.
Linen is an ancient and sustainable natural fibre which comes from the flax plant. It is naturally resistant to pests and therefore these eco-friendly stem fibre plants require practically no pesticides nor herbicides producing large amounts of usable fibre per acre without irrigation.
Studio Linen is available in a beautiful range of colours
and this long sleeved sweater is a stylish piece to add to your summer wardrobe.
