It is crafted using a unique mix of Cowgirl Blues mohair, kid silk lace, and superwash merino yarns, all held together and combined with a mix of Knit Collage yarns. With its oversized silhouette, this sweater is designed to provide unparalleled comfort throughout the day or night. Pair it with your favorite denim or tights and boots for a boho chic look.
