Last week two pointelle tops were added to the shop. But what’s ‘pointelle’ you might ask.

Pointelle is a word to describe knits with openwork, also known as lace knits. The origin of the word dating back to the 1950s was used to describe lace made entirely from a needle.
The result is a delicate feminine fabric with ‘holes’, used for creating texture. It is often used to create details on otherwise plain garments, used to create small accessories such a gloves or as was popular during the 1960s and 1970s for creating an all-over textured fabric for a garment.

It’s fantastic for cooler summer days because the openwork is cooler than a solid knit.

Here are my top picks of pointelle, openwork and lace knits on Etsy…
