hoswick paint cape

sea blues with orange

Flattering, elegant and comfortable, Nielanell capes have become something of a classic. Great if you find a wrap or shawl too fiddly, the cape can be worn in several different ways.


Knitted in extra-fine merino, in a complex 5 colour jacquard, this cape, from our 10th anniversary collection, is inspired by the colour and texture that surrounds the Nielanell studio in our home village of Hoswick, Shetland. The pattern is based on a rooflines and the texture of old, salt-blasted paint in the village – which can be seen all around.


Choose from sea greys or blues, highlighted with an almost-fluoro orange or yellow.


100% merino wool



Length: 69cm



Handwash recommended


We recommend that you hand wash using liquid or flakes. You may wish to wash in the machine on a very gentle handwash wool cycle at 30 degrees or less, using very little detergent specifically designed for delicate/wool items – but you need to ensure your washing machine uses a very gentle handwash wool cycle.


Do not wring.

Do not tumble dry. 


Dry flat on a rack or in the fresh air, and steam/press lightly. 


Alternatively you may dry clean the garment.

To ensure individuality we make a small number of designs in a particular colourway and some pieces are one-offs. If we have sold your chosen colour when you order, we will contact you – we may be able to make another or have an alternative in stock. Sizes of individual pieces and colourways can vary. If you’re unsure if this style will fit, or looking for a colour, please get in touch.
