A quadrilateral with only one pair of parallel sides. An asymmetrical cardigan with a dynamic shape, Trapezoid is a modern sweater perfect for layering throughout fall and winter. The body is knit with Merino Alpaca in twisted stockinette, lending a subtle texture to the smooth fabric. The fitted ribbed sleeves are knit with a finer weight (your choice of Sock, Staccato, or Cima).
