Multiple shades of undyed pure wool combine in each color of Wildwood. A pleasure to knit with, one thick and thin gently spun ply is wrapped with a thinner second ply for a subtle texture with surprisingly good stitch definition.

This striped cardigan with waist shaping and raglan sleeves is worked from the top down, with short rows used to shape the neck.
