Product description

Koto’s futuristic drop-shoulder silhouette and high-relief texture contrast with the traditional woolen-spun loft of Shelter and Tones to create a thoroughly modern pullover. Slender articulated ribbing accentuates the dramatic short-row-shaped hem, while trim facings at collar, cuffs, and hem make for a beautifully minimalist finish.
