The WARM-UP SWEATER is your new favourite sweatshirt: the ideal companion for a scenic hike, post-workout warmup, or just a lazy day inside on the sofa. A relaxed silhouette and gently-fitted sleeves lend practicality and comfort to the classic raglan shaping. Whip it up in your favourite colour of Drops AIR – or get creative holding a mohair with a heavy DK or light worsted yarn for maximum coziness!
