Summer always does us the favor of breaking old habits… We linger longer, explore farther, and savor more. Our Ramble Wrap is just the companion for summertime adventure, lightweight and carefree, unfussy and beautiful!
Its striking three-dimensional texture is created by a simple combination of knit and slip stitches… super easy and wonderfully waffle-y!
We knit up our Ramble Wrap in our Sweetgrass, a fingering weight blend of 65% organic cotton and 35% superfine alpaca. The cotton lends beautiful stitch definition and lightweight springiness, while the alpaca elevates with lavish softness and drape. Choose from six undyed colors, each right how nature grew it!
