Hebden Gilet Jacket
The Hebden Gilet Jacket is an easy-to-wear extra layer for your toddler or youngster, helping to maintain their core temperature as the temperatures start to fall.
The gilet can be quickly slipped on over a T-shirt or top when they are playing outside and provides extra warmth without restricting their arm movements. It can be worn open or snapped shut with large feature press-studs.
The jacket is worked in a soft merino wool yarn and the pattern includes four sizes to suit boys or girls aged from 2 - 8 years.
