Do we even come close to living the high drama of 18th century Scotland today? You may not help a Prince escape to a foreign land while deeply in love with an officer of the army pursuing him, nor will 300 gallons of whisky be consumed by the 3000 mourners who show up at your funeral but for the days when you want hearts to flutter, Thistle & Broom’s exclusive Flora MacDonald sweater is precisely what you should wear.
The Flora MacDonald is a single-breasted 12-ply, hand knit moss stitch jacket wrought completely in luxurious Todd & Duncan cashmere yarn from Scotland by Hillary Rohde’s talented knitters. The front closes with three fine suede ties, fitted through the body with princess seams in the front and back and the sleeves end at precisely the spot a man should kiss your hand. Finish it off a little lace showing in the neckline and cuff and the swoon factor will be complete.
