sumair, Gaelic for the drone of a bagpipe. Those magnificent pipes originally made of rosewood from which Scotland's second most culturally identifiable item can issue forth any variety of atavistic music. Our exclusive Sumair 12-ply hand knit cashmere pullover subtly conveys the turnings of the wood, whilst the beauty of this combination of stitches is brought to full perfection rendered in our dramatic colour palette of Scotland's colours from Todd & Duncan. You can imagine moors covered in vaporous mists all you want, but there is nothing subtle about the colours of Scotland.
As I travel the country, often with the windows down regardless of the time of year and the weather drinking in the scents of Scotland, driving in complete synchronicity to the Peatbog Faeries or other Scottish musicians blaring from the stereo, this lush sweater is draped across my shoulders for warmth. The churning sea at the Butt of Lewis is precisely the same shade of Todd & Duncan's yarn called Ocean. This luxurious hand-knit beauty features a raglan shoulder (no shoulder seam) which rise to a polo neck, or round neck if you prefer, and like all of our efforts in cashmere features a decrease in stitches to the waist making Sumair simply stunning on either gender. Allow a minimum of eight weeks for delivery. A handful of measurements will be secured upon ordering to ensure perfect bespoke fit.
Chosen to perfectly compliment Thistle & Broom's beautiful namesake tweed from A. Elliot Fine Fabrics, our new palette of Todd & Duncan cashmere yarns for 2011/2012 are available now.
