Knitters often work to hide construction details in their garments, but our Contour Tee in Santolina puts this supporting role at center stage! Here, the armhole and shoulder shaping moves from the wings to the spotlight, creating contour lines that carve in a flattering zig, then zag. Add little capped sleeves and a split hem to this in-the-round bottom-up knit, and you have an entirely new spin on the classic tee! The real star of the show is our Santolina yarn, a unique and lovely mix of 70% organically grown cotton, 20% rayon from bamboo, and 10% hemp. There are twenty-two colors ranging from soft and subtle, to bright and punchy, including this Teal Tide, whose deep blue is like a shimmering secret cove. Santolina’s heathery beauty and soft, gently textured hand knit up like your old-but-new favorite tee… Bravo!
