Starting with luxurious alpaca silk, Amethyst Iris beautifully highlights refined stockinette with its smooth humble elegance, and the charming iris edging finishes the capelet in an unexpected playful way.
Amethyst Iris is a capelet featuring high collar that easily and softly drapes around the neck. The flattering shape will make it year-round wardrobe staple, helping you make transition between sweater weather and summer sun all the more fun!
Alternatively omit the collar and choose a breezy silk blend and you are set for summer!

Material: sport weight alpaca or silk blends.
