  • Description

    Simple, easy, and elegant knit shell. Shaped vaguely like a muscle tank. Tucks easily into trousers but also hangs beautifully with a thick hem. Slightly sheer and airy - I picture Patti Smith wearing the black version of this top with pegged trousers and scuffed boots. The 100% washed linen knit is cool and slinky like soft, fibrous chain mail. Layer over a simple bralette, easy slip-dress, or go bare underneath - your call. Sage is a warm, olive-y green - excellent to pair with creams, denims, and blacks.

  • Material

    Lightweight, gauzy linen knit. Intended to be slightly sheer (the black is the least sheer, the flax is the sheerest). Can be worn year-round - alone in the summer and layered under jackets and kimonos in the fall. Ultra draped and moves beautifully with the body. Wicks away moisture and feels cool on the skin. Linen is a sustainable and easy to grow fiber that is incredibly durable and wear resistant and that biodegrades cleanly and quickly. Washed finish is soft and matte.

    Available in three earth tones - a warm, olive-y sage, a simple flax, and a classic black.

    Handwash in cool water with a mild detergent. Submerge in cool water, gently squeeze and release fabric to fully wet. Let soak, remove from water, and press with a dry towel. You may also machine was on the hand-wash cycle in cold water. Tumble dry on lowest setting or lay flat to dry, stretching garment to original shape. Lightly steam once dry to remove wrinkles.

  • Fit

    Intended to have a relaxed, comfortable fit. Slightly cropped knit fabric stretches to accommodate variance in sizes. Fabric will stretch some with wear.
