Welcoming and warm, the Eagan pullover layers experiences lived with memories made. Crosshatched intersections of tidy rib and fluid garter stitch evoke a fond nostalgia in a modern take. Equally at home paired with cut-offs as linen slacks, this sweater invites your personal style to shine. Knit in Peerie’s incomparable 100% Merino, Eagan boasts a buoyant spring that defies its allover texture, perfect for easy layering and effortless expression.
