Decorated with cables and eyelets, the Alicia pullover is a showstopper. The relaxed yet polished silhouette makes this a piece you’ll love to wear no matter the occasion. Two strands of Penna are held together in this sweater to create a fabric that retains warmth without added bulk. The fabric is dreamy and soft – perfect for next-to-skin comfort.
