Actor de jour, Dan Stevens, star of Godzilla x Kong, Cuckoo and Abigail, would look sublime in Barrie of Scotland's magnetic 3D roses are red, artisan cashmere and lambswool wild Scottish salmon pink sweater. The sweater celebrates the great Scottish cashmere mills and the exquisite skill and remarkable craftsmanship in slow, handcrafted knitwear design. Dan clearly adores wearing handcrafted knitwear and we've noticed that he has been flaunting cardigans and groovy suits on the red carpet and at press junkets.
