About the design:
Isham Road is an exceptionally simple and current silhouette: an oversized drop-shoulder tee. Meant to be worn oversized, this type of garment is easy to knit, wear, and makes a great early sweater project.

About the yarn:
The combination of extrafine merino, cashmere, camel, and mulberry silk provides the most delicious hand. The unique mill construction provides the strength. Ultimately, Caravan is a yarn that boasts the ability to be sweet and strong without compromise.
