Carmen is a beautiful modern take on the classic poncho. The rather remarkable Basis yarn is a blend of merino, alpaca and cotton, which results in a multi-season garment with sophisticated color variegation. The reversible stitches and construction allow you to showcase either a slip stitch or rib pattern. Knitted I-cord trim provides the finishing touch.

Basis- 75% Cotton, 16% Alpaca, 9% Cashmere – Fingering Weight 210 yarns/50 grams

A unique blend of cashmere and alpaca with micro threads of cotton. It has the elasticity and bounce of animal fibers, yet it’s mostly cotton – almost unbelievable. So, if in the past you have not enjoyed working with cotton, this yarn will surely change your mind.

The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
