Description

A cardigan like a hug, full of textured stitches and knit out of soft, bouncy yarn - a cardigan like that will keep you warm all winter. With
its all-over stitch pattern and open front, Paraiba is the one garment we think you’re going to grab from your closet to throw on over your PJs to have your morning coffee and your black turtleneck when you meet your best friend for dinner. Rosy Green Wool’s Merino d’Arles yarn provides the perfect backdrop for this classic and timeless silhouette.
