This capelet/cowl/hood, can be worn by both sexes, it is designed in two colourways.
Urban Troubadour is inspired by Medieval Times but with a modern feel to it. Knitted in six shades of an organic 4-ply Dorset Poll and plant dyed by Renaissance Dyeing in the French Pyrenees. These shades are dyed with the plants woad and madder that would have grown wild and used for dyeing in the Middle ages.
The design is part of a knitting kit, made in collaboration with [Renaissance Dyeing]. Together with other knit designs from 4 different designers world-wide, this knitting kit was presented during the London [Knitnation] 29-31 July 2010
