When I first wore this top in public to Rhinebeck 2019, it drew a lot of comments, the most common of which was, “What is that?” People couldn’t tell whether they were looking at knitting, crochet, or some other fiber art.

In honor of those questions, the top is named Manna!

Manna is a drapey, flowy top that moves like a dream and lends comfort and elegance to your wardrobe.
