Hand-knit tops are always a special beauty. Stitch patterns and beautiful yarn transform into something wonderful. The Serafina top is no exception, with gentle color changes and a lovely lace hem creating the base for a lovely garment. Knit in Ravello, this cotton and cashmere blend yarn has a slight halo and is super soft to wear. The marriage of fibers means that you can enjoy this piece for multiple seasons throughout the year.
