    What is a Swoncho?

    A Swoncho is a combination of a sweater and a poncho. Thanks to the cuffs, it stays in place, and the wrists are always kept cozy, eliminating cold hands. A Swoncho is ideal for the transitional season from autumn to winter or from winter to spring when it is too warm outside to wear a jacket.

    I named this beautiful Swoncho ''Nessa'', because in J.R.R. Tolkiens world of Middle-earth, Nessa Tári-Laisi is the ''Queen of the spring''. She is also named Acairis ''the bride'', Indis ''good soul'', Helinyetille ''eyes of soul peace'' or Melesta ''the lovely one''. Nessa enjoys dancing over the green meadows of Valinor. Her season is spring.
