I loved this design from the moment I first saw it, but decided to wait to try it on when I visited the mill in September. Loved it even more — so much that I snagged the sample to take home with me!
It is soft and snuggly, and the colors are gorgeous. I love the pockets, too. The pullover design with the cowl neck is ingenious…easy to put on and no fussing with buttons or zips.
I have received compliments everywhere I’ve worn it. People love the tartan and are surprised at how soft the fabric is.
This is an exquisitely designed and expertly executed hallmark of Prickly Thistle's ethos!!! Versatility and thrift melds with effortless sheik and universal style. Historical reference is just under the surface with expert pattern weaving and just jaw-dropping materials. Every purchase I have made from Prickly Thistle is a fashion statement; every piece is testament to historical and environmental ethics; every piece reveals the sensitivity of and reaction to responsible environmental and historical commitments; and finally, every piece illustrates the clever and curious minds that together design and weave such gorgeous garments. In short, I'm gobsmacked every single time!! I would gladly volunteer my services and be the most enthusiastic cheerleader, pom-poms wildly shaking, for this glorious enterprise! Woohoo!!
