Let the lush foliage of Deliciosa enfold you in elegant and earthy comfort as you welcome a sense of natural awe into your wardrobe. Echoing old-growth trees and the dark dapple of deep woods, Deliciosa makes a statement with its bold motif of large leaves inscribed in stockinette that twine organically atop a backdrop of half-twisted rib. With a classic, boxy shape, this sublime pullover is offered in both cropped and standard lengths and features a deeply ribbed hem that anchors Shelter’s lofty fabric for perfectly balanced proportions.
