Light, lofty, and very warm. The Nimbus Poncho is a lightweight top layer that can work indoors in place of a cardigan or outdoors instead of a jacket. It is woven in plain weave using Eco Wool, a 100% wool yarn, for both the warp and the weft. The weave is loose and airy--5 epi and 5 ppi. Once the two panels are woven, they are stitched together up the back and then a decorative stitch is worked on top of the seam. The kit makes one poncho measuring 44" from side-to-side and 20" in length. It can be hand washed,and air dried.
