a sleeveless top with flower lace
named after common wildflowers on the Tibetan plateau
called Galsang flowers
Galsang flowers are common wildflowers with strong vitality and withstand harsh environments on the Tibetan plateau. In Tibetan, Galsang means good times or happiness, so the Galsang flower is also called the flower of happiness.
Knitted with Shangdrok Silky Yak, this seamless top-down tank top has a good balance of coolness and warmth against the skin. The soft fabric has a lovely sheen and drape that express the quality of a yarn made with smooth silk and precious yak fibres. It is so comfortable that you will love wearing it close to the skin.
The neckline and armholes are designed for comfort and ease of movement. When you need more cover, layer a light shawl or a pullover with shawl-like lightness that stays on your body, like the Wild Forests pullover. One of the yarns used in Wild Forests is Shangdrok Silk Yak. Galsang and Wild Forests (click here to visit) are designed to go with each other in style, material and in their natural colours.
Have fun knitting a 3-row flower lace on the neck and hem, the only decorative detail on this simple tank top that does not require you to pick up stitches and knit any finishing around necklines and armholes.
May the flowers bless you with good times and happiness.
