Laminaria

Design Fay Dashper-Hughes
Yarn Jamieson's of Shetland

The rippling texture of the alpine stitch stirs memories of seascapes and gently waving fronds of kelp. Laminaria is made with Jamieson’s of Shetland yarn from 100% Shetland wool. The wool is known for its durability and warmth, perfect for a winter skirt. Plus its body hugging silhouette, with waist, hip and thigh shaping, will trap in extra warmth.

Measurements

1(2,3,4,5,6)(7,8,9,10)

Full hip circumference: 80 (87, 100, 111, 121)(129, 141, 152, 160, 171)cm / 31.5 (34.25, 39.25, 43.75, 47.75)(50.75, 55.5, 59.75, 63, 67.25)”

Primary measurement is the full hip measurement, which is the widest part of your hips. If you prefer a very fitted skirt, choose the size that matches your full hip measurement. For a looser fit, choose a larger size that will give you positive ease. 

The modelled skirt has 6cm / 2.25” positive ease.
