It’s from Poetry, a UK online site, who do a nice range of easy-design contemporary clothes with a casually classic look. Lots of natural fibres and sizes up to UK22 (US24). They say:

Importantly our designers reference the key trends of each season, interpreting them in shapes and silhouettes that are created to fit and flatter but are current and contemporary in their expression.
We continue to work with many of our partner suppliers who supported us at launch.

Created by us, this unique fabric is the result of mixing together two of our favourite yarns. Alpaca with its soft and fluffy quality and our chunky linen that has lovely lustre and texture to create a yarn with natural tone and contrast.
