Achillea T-Shirt – by Helena Timms
With May giving us some bright and sunny days here in Devon, we are starting to feel the need for some new summer clothing and Helena Timms has the perfect solution! Helena has lovingly created a stunner of a lace knit top worked in two complimenting shades of our Appledore lace weight yarn. The beautiful, feathered lace pattern creates a subtle ripple effect that carries through to the solid stripes. With a slightly sloped shoulder and positive ease this is going to be a joy to wear for summer parties or Pimm’s in the garden!
