Take the warmth of a homey hearth with you everywhere you go with this decadent, cabled wrap. Thick ropes of sinuous cables twine over and under, growing organically from the ribbed border. Though heavily textured, Quarry’s lofty jumble of fibers make this woolen spun wrap lightweight and easy-wearing. Worked end to end, this bulky knit can easily be lengthened for even more dramatic effect or narrowed for a slimmer profile.
