Easy style with a cape, the Nielanell signature knit
Need an elegant but easy layer? Looking for an uplifting accent of colour or pattern, for otherwise plain outfits? Find fastenings and sleeves troublesome? Have a Zoom meeting and want to quickly smarten up?
The answer to these questions, and so many others, is a cape.
We’ve introduced our customers to these deceptively simple pieces of knitwear (also called ponchos by some), and they are now a staple of many of wardrobes, having flown the coop from Shetland to locations across the globe. Useful and wearable in cooler and warmer climates alike, capes are also a brilliant travel companion.
Most capes can be worn in a variety of ways, giving a straighter or asymmetric style—some customers even style with a skinny belt. Each wearer looks so different.
If you need any help in choosing the best cape for you, please do get in touch (if it’s more convenient you can also find us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter ). We’ll be delighted to talk all things cape!
Our knitwear is crafted in Shetland, using traditional techniques to make modern designs. We use the finest quality yarn: our garments are made to last.
