Princeton Capelet Using Blue Sky Fibers Eco-Cashmere
Whether worn as a capelet or as a generous cowl, this piece has a soft, sophisticated simplicity. Designed by Sylvia Hager for Blue Sky Fibers, the Princeton Capelet is shaped wider at the bottom and narrowing towards a drapey, cowl-like neck. So versatile, it can gently hug your shoulders or cuddle around your neck!
Blue Sky Fibers’ Eco-Cashmere—a DK-weight blend of half recycled and half virgin cashmere—creates a Princeton Capelet with lush, lived-in softness. Nice and lofty, Eco-Cashmere knits up into a cozy fabric with lots of drape.
