The Modern Wrapper walks the line between cozy and chic, snuggly and sleek; an oversized piece designed with thoughtful details to fit well and stay on the shoulders in a softly draping fabric to flatter every body. Wear it around the house, or dress it up a little for town. We mixed a strand of tweedy wool or smooth alpaca-blend fingering-weight yarn with lace-weight mohair on nice big needles for luxurious drape and a quick knit. Customize the fit by adjusting sleeve length.
