Done in the rich tones of Pompeii on our glorious Lascaux Worsted base the Santa Maria del Fiore Cardigan features a stunning but deceptively simple cable pattern. The unusual cables and texture evoke stone archways, stained glass, and ironwork. The long silhouette, paired with understated styling, creates an easy-to-wear but sharp look.
Ships of the Desert!
Hop on a camel’s back and enjoy a ride across Egypt’s golden sands, where breathtaking views of ancient pyramids fill your vision while history unfolds around you. Often adorned with tassels and fringe in brilliant colours, the woven saddle covers mingle harmoniously with the lovely tan tones of the beasts frequently called The Ships of the Desert. The bold greens, reds, magentas, and blues blend together in a rich tapestry that is as exciting as the camel ride itself.
