The 40s Style Fairisle Tank in Shetland brown from The House of Foxy.
This dream of a vintage knit is currently available in Shetland Brown (pictured) and Shetland Grey. Made from wool, it is very warm and comfortable. If you have sensitive skin or a condition like Fibromyalgia, you may find the natural texture of the wool slightly uncomfortable to the touch if you brush against it, but I haven’t had a problem with it when wearing long sleeves, and it certainly doesn’t cause any problems over a shirt.
I throw my vest over House of Foxy blouses, Freddies of Pinewood work blouses and spellbounds, and if it’s chilly out finish it off with a cropped Americana jacket, Emmy Design Sweden fairisle cardigan or Screen Siren jacket. Wear it with high-waisted 30s or 40s style skirts or trousers, tucked in or out. It always looks fetching!
The Shetland Grey vest is currently stocked by Australian House of Foxy stockist Call Me Valerie.
