A basic crew neck pullover with textured and curved front, rubus reminds me of berry picking season on our island in Maine! Knit in The Fibre Company Acadia, this sweater is perfect for cool summer hikes and evenings cooking s’mores around a camp fire. Relaxed but with a fashion twist, rubus is a perfect addition to every wardrobe.
