This gorgeous Saol Funnel Neck Poncho Jacket is the best of both worlds — part jacket, part poncho, it gives you the freedom of movement of a poncho with its half sleeves and open bottom design while affording the comfort of a jacket with its full zipper front and two side pockets for keeping your hands warm or storing keys and cards. The zipper is topped with an elegant Trinity knot zipper pull.
Knit from 100% super soft Merino wool, the Funnel Neck Poncho Jacket is an extra warm yet breathable layer for those chilly fall and spring days. The high collar can be worn up or down. The intricate cable knit patterns give the poncho a bit of feminine tailoring while also connecting it to the traditional working Irish fishermen’s sweaters that it is inspired by. Cable knitting is said to represent the ropes of Aran fishermen and the promise of a good catch or fortune.
Saol is one of the leading manufacturers of contemporary Irish knitwear. Inspired by the traditional Irish fishermen’s sweaters first created over a century ago on the remote Aran Islands off Ireland’s west coast, Saol carries on the tradition of fine craftsmanship, intricate detail, and durable materials to create dramatic and lasting knitwear for women and men.
