Knit in a luxury mix of cashmere, baby camel, angora and merino, embrace is a modern, oversized cardigan that is perfect to wrap yourself in on a balmy day or chilly evening. The long line and unusual shaping, along with the sloped front button band, result in an interesting and flattering drape along the garments sides and back.
