Dieser Poncho spiegel den Sommer wider: leicht und luftig, auch die Farbe ist einfach wunderschön. Ich freue mich sehr auf das Muster

Ideale per le serate estive

Ben gek op Alpaca Boucle, is een genot om te dragen op frissere zomerdagen/avonden. Deze poncho lijkt me ideaal voor dat doel door de 'open' steek.
