Ponchos are warm, easy to wear and so versatile. Throw it on, and head out the door. Or take an extra moment to line up the joining seam, just forward of your arm and shoulder. For some more elegance, turn it a little, with the seam now down your centre back, roll the neckline over a couple of times, pair with some smart jeans and a long necklace. My favourite way to wear these though is by bringing up the corner by your wrist to your shoulder and holding it there with a shawl pin. The everyday poncho now looks smart enough for an evening out in town. There are endless ways to wear a poncho and the ultimate style is completely up to you.
It is hard to describe the colour of this poncho. First I have hand dyed the alpaca yarn to a beautiful soft & variegated coral. I have then plied it with a soft burgundy wool and our un dyed fawn alpaca. I have then woven it onto a white woollen warp. The wool is grown and processed in NSW. This poncho is slightly longer than some most of the others.
Ponchos make versatile and comfortable maternity wear. And many new mothers also choose to wear a poncho both for the warmth and protection it provides while you carry your baby on your chest, but also for comfort, simplicity and privacy while nursing.
Our small herd of suri alpacas live here on our farm and I can watch them grazing contentedly from the window while I weave.
Gently hand wash in warm water, wrap in a towel to remove excess water and lay flat to dry. Do not wring. Can be ironed with a protective cotton tea towel laid over it.
