Burl and counterpart Gail, featuring an allover, interrupted double seed stitch motif, are perfectly cozy pieces to knit up in our cushy Osprey aran weight wool. Burl has a more traditional, roomy fit in the sleeves and body, is deeper at cuffs, hem, and yoke, and has more of a shallow, narrow crew neck.
