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.
There is a beautiful two tone quality to the striped linen, where the lighter colour shows in the darker stripes, making for a pleasing surface. The stripe runs down the length of the garment, and is contrasted by stripes running the opposite way down the sleeves.
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 contrast sleeve binding.

Linen & Care
Your garment is made from yarn dyed 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 and processed in Europe before being woven in Ireland.
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.
Leave to dry naturally.
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.
