Parkers Batwing - Lilac
An easy, playful top.
This beautiful, laid back linen top is the perfect piece for when you want to feel stylish, but comfortable and at ease. The slouchy shape and batwing sleeves are loose and relaxed but not too oversized, coming in quite boxy at the waist and hip. The Parker’s Batwing does not incorporate any fastenings and has a scoop neckline to allow it to be taken on and off easily.
The linen has a beautiful and slightly irregular texture that is very pleasing and characteristic of this loved fabric.
This lightweight garment is perfect for layering in Winter months or light and breezy on its own in warmer weather. The sleeves are cropped and can be worn as they are, or rolled up further revealing a neat sleeve binding.

Linen & Care
Your garment is made from 100% linen. Linen by nature is sustainable fabric. It comes from flax, a plant from which every part is utilised, the flax seeds being used for oil, cattle feed and paper amongst other things. The processing uses a lot less water than cotton.
The linen crop for your garment is harvested, processed and woven in Eastern Europe.
Linen is a really durable fabric and is a natural insulator, keeping you warm in Winter and cool in Summer. It is moth repellent and very strong.
We recommend that you wash your garment by hand or in the machine at 30 degrees using a non-bio washing powder or liquid.
Do not tumble dry. Please dry naturally, leaving flat.
If you want a crisp feel, then iron on a medium to high heat, or wear crinkled for a more relaxed look.
Linen will stiffen after each wash, but will soften once in use.
Do not bleach.
