This lightweight cardigan embodies clean, streamlined style. The airy dolman sleeves and classic silhouette make it an ideal and comfortable layering piece. It’s a wardrobe staple that offers a neat, polished finish to your outfit—whether worn over a dressy blouse or filmy sundress.
Siena is worked flat from the bottom up with two of Shibui’s newest fibers held together throughout. Lunar—Shibui’s new lace-weight blend of extra fine merino and mulberry silk—and Reed—a 100% linen fingering-weight—unite in a light, lissome fabric. These two fibers are brilliant in this simply graceful garment.
