29/10 @ 1.30pm: I only have enough fabric left for 1 more Steel Gansey, so... IF YOU CANNOT PLACE A STEEL GANSEY INTO YOUR SHOPPING BAG...then I have sold out of that colour completely (the second colour that is running very low is Black).
The Gansey is a substantial boxy throw-over. It consists of 2 layers of pre-shrunk linen in contrasting colours: one side is in our soft and shimmery Herringbone, the other in our medium-weight stripes. It is made such that it can be worn with either size out as can be seen in the pics. Watch Ep. 55 of the Slow Wardrobe podcast on YouTube to see it in motion, hear the story behind it and be given lots of styling ideas for it.
Throw it over a complete Layercake for a warm layer that will successfully replace a jacket or coat in all but the coldest weather. Wear it inside as part of a Layercake and it will feel like the cosiest hug; a worthy alternative to a wool jumper!
Available in 2 sizes that can both be worn by a range of different sized and shaped bodies, depending on the silhouette you like. Check the size guide for more details. Neckline, sleeve length and body length are all chosen to work perfectly with your existing Layercakes.
The colour combinations are:
Ochre Herringbone with Charcoal Stripe
Teal Herringbone with Mist Stripe
Apple Herringbone with Heather Stripe
Black Herringbone with Teal Stripe
Steel Herringbone with Magpie Stripe
NOTE: the Pink Herringbone Linen is still available but not part of this offer.
