The Eastern Hemlock is an evergreen tree native to parts of North America and Canada that grows to heights of over 100 ft. tall. This state tree of Pennsylvania coats the rolling hills of the keystone state to create a lush, colorful landscape throughout every season.

The Hemlock Cardigan is a long, oversized sweater meant for cozying up on a chilly day. The suggested wool-blend yarn provides a touch of warmth, while the mesh detail panels allow airflow so you don’t get too stuffy. The length of the cardigan relates to the awesome height that the Hemlock tree can grow to, while the subtle texture mimics the tree’s long branches, leaves, and pinecones.
