The shore tells the story of each passerby — the delicate signature of a sandpiper’s print, the arc of a wave-tossed shell, gentle reminders of your own joyful journey. Celebrate sunny days spent by the water with the Bewick pullover’s beguiling pattern of tessellating stitch motifs. Elegantly etched in Peerie’s soft American Merino wool, the drop-shoulder silhouette is as effortless as lounging on your favorite beach blanket, whiling away the hours.
