LUNA is a simple top-down sweater featuring just enough subtle twisted-rib texture to elevate the soft and pretty stockinette stitch background to sophisticated heights. The gentle cascade of a loose turtleneck and generous proportions of the body and sleeves make Luna an easy to wear sweater that will have you looking both pulled together and completely at ease in any setting. La Bien Aimée Helix and Mohair Silk held together create a light and luxurious fabric with a delicate halo perfect for next-to-skin wear.

ease according to your own preferences.
