Sarah Bell – Gert Vest – Forest


The Gert vest features a low scoop neck with an elegant roll edge trim. A versatile piece to wear alone, with the low scoop at the front or back.  Layer it over the Florence Shirt, team it with the Mary Ellen Pants or combine as a twin set with the Ivy Sweater. Crafted from the softest 19.5 micron merino wool, spun in Italy and knitted at Optimum clothing NZ.

100% Super Soft Extra Fine Merino, 19.5 micron, Yarn spun in Italy.

A very soft yarn with superior fibre strength. This yarn is very light and comfortable to wear. Many people who usually cannot wear wool can often wear garments knitted from this yarn.
