Sandcastle is a cheery little poncho with seams to create to look of sleeves. It is knit in the round from the top down using Weepaca. Weepaca is a blend of 50% superwash Merino wool and 50% baby alpaca, spun into an incredibly soft worsted weight yarn, perfect for kids' clothes because it is machine washable. Finished chest measurements are 18 (20, 22)" with shoulder-to-edge measurements of 10 (11, 12.5)". Designed by Jamie Thomas.
