Integrity, adaptability, character and exploration – this is the Alternative Shetland knitwear. The Nielanell knitwear studio, based in the village of Hoswick, is a place of pilgrimage for those in the know. The small and unassuming shop only hints at the tactile sweetshop within, bursting with vibrant colour and scrumptious texture.

Rani Long Cape


Ships From: United Kingdom (UK)

Sold By : Nielanell Category: Tags: , ,


Our lovely, a-line cape has slits in the arms to keep your hands free. Nice and long, and with a swing as you move, this is more of an outer garment than other pieces we make.

Front and back are different, with the double sided fabric reversed for an interesting contrast.

100% extra-fine merino wool

Generous relaxed fit
81cm at longest point

Handwash recommended

We recommend that you hand wash using liquid or flakes. You may wish to wash in the machine on a very gentle handwash wool cycle at 30 degrees or less, using very little detergent specifically designed for delicate/wool items – but you need to ensure your washing machine uses a very gentle handwash wool cycle. Do not wring. Do not tumble dry. Dry flat on a rack or in the fresh air, and steam/press lightly. Alternatively you may dry clean the garment.
