If you’re tired of plain, everyday sweaters and want to add some whimsy and fun to your wardrobe, then you can’t go wrong with our Ladies Herringbone Irish Poncho! Gracefully flowy and chic, our poncho is made from soft 100% Merino wool that will keep you warm and cozy through the fall and winter seasons. It gives a loose yet neatly tapered look that elegantly frames any shape while still offering great breathability. Our poncho is perfect for layering--if you need something to complete that amazing fall look you have, this is the one. The pattern on our poncho features a striking geometric herringbone design that sweeps dramatically across from left to right, drawing the eye across.
Complementing the distinctive herringbone pattern is an asymmetric folded collar that is decorated with a brown football button detail. The collar line adds a unique touch that you won’t find anywhere else, and the button details run down the right shoulder for a distinguished, feminine effect. You can pair it with leggings for a casual look, or slacks for a fun piece to wear at the office. Either way, you will look amazing, and everyone will ask you where you found such a special piece. Herringbone Also referred to as a broken twill weave, herringbone patterns are a distinctive pattern usually found in twill fabric. It may look like a broken zigzag, but the pattern is called herringbone because it also resembles the skeleton of a herring fish.
Herringbone patterns are commonly found in wool textiles, and are extremely popular in suits, outerwear, and even our fabulous poncho. Tweed cloth is often woven in a herringbone pattern, and our poncho brings this classic pattern forward with a modern twist. The bold geometric angles of the herringbone lines are both mesmerizing and graceful at the same time, with the waves of the angles mimicking the waves of the fabric as it elegantly drapes over the shoulders and down the body.
Why is Merino wool special?
Merino wool fibers are naturally long, making for strong fibers and super soft yarn. Not only is it super soft, but it does not give you the itchiness that many people associate with wool. Because Merino wool has longer and finer fibers, it is more flexible than other types of wool, and moves easily with you rather than poking the skin uncomfortably (which results in the itchy sensation). This softer quality wool makes it a comfortable choice in all kinds of settings, and the perfect choice of material for this ultimate cozy sweater.
