We love Palermo and its simply beautiful design; the short sleeve cardie will see you through the whole summer keeping you looking and feeling cool during those hot and humid days. Knitted in Lacy, it’s a great way to add a spot of colour to your outfit and it will soon become an everyday favourite. Heading for coffee and cake or for walk around town? Siena is a wonderful short sleeved top for day to day life. Siena is knitted in Covet, but we think this top is a key piece to have in your wardrobe in several different shades and any of the Studio Linen colours would complement this garment!
