Where it opened to provide extra warmth for your shoulders or scrunch it up like a cowl for a completely different look. Simple stripes are made of 3 colors in innovative Techno, a wonderfully light yet warm yarn that has alpaca & merino fibers blown into a silk casing. The garment is then flipped inside-out after making so that the purl side is facing out.
