Striped merino Hyde

Yesterday I finished this merino Hyde T-Shirt and this morning it was just 5 degrees Celsius. Is my timing impeccable or what?

This great striped merino is from Nick’s Fabrics in Auckland and comes in a variety of colourways. The selvedge edge was quite wavy and almost stretched out near the edges. It wasn’t a huge issue because I didn’t need to cut right to the edge, but I’d say to keep that in mind if you need the entire width to be usable.

The Hyde has quickly become my go-to for everyday wear. If you’re in Christchurch, you might spot me in your local park with a greyhound wearing this or one of my other versions (or one of my many toiles). Because it’s not super-fitted and thanks to the high neckline, it’s very Banksia Bralette friendly. I like that it doesn’t feel fussy, but still feels much more ‘put-together’ than something I could buy from a store does.

I’ve actually been on a little Hyde T-Shirt binge recently. There was a gap in my wardrobe for long-sleeve t-shirts which don’t have turtlenecks. Most of the long-sleeve Tarlee T-shirts and hacks of the Tarlee that I’ve made have turtlenecks on them, which is sometimes overkill when you just need a sleeves worth of extra warmth. Expect more pictures soon!
