"Soft and Beautiful!"
I loved this sweater immediately! Much softer than I expected - it will pack easily for travel and add a bit of warmth for chilly nights. Also roomy enough for a turtleneck underneath. The colors are a little lighter and brighter than the appear in the photo, making it just right for Spring wear. Very pleased with the quality of this work.
