A light, comfortable, layering cardigan with contrast pocket linings, adding a cheerful tone to a simple silhouette.

The relaxed fit is easy to slip on and light weight enough for all day comfort. Soft and cozy in a luxurious merino wool yarn with a touch of alpaca/yak that adds the perfect drape.
