The Design

"Finally in Fine Lace!"

Our original Modern Wrapper was a big hit, but many knitters asked for a similar style without the mohair component. So we developed a finer-gauge option using two strands of lace-weight yarn held together. This sweet spot of gauge and needle size makes a super-wearable fabric.

We also slimmed the sleeve and silhouette and added a bit more precision to the fit by grading the design in three relaxed sizes.
