Melanie Press Collection Rik Rak Cardigan features in On The Hill Magazine

Our fabulous Rik Rak Cardigan was cherry-picked for On The Hill Gifting Dec 2019 following it's predecessor's success in Anna Murphy's article. A small run were made from our Scottish Lambswool source, in a comfy oversized shape ideal to snuggle in over the winter months. Snap buttons were chosen again to inject a contemporary spin beside the contrast zig zag trim for added some extra zing.
