Product description

Ideal for twirling across the ice or keeping warm after ballet class, this delicate top of simple lace and cables on a ground of reverse stockinette is comfortable and feather light in Loft. The modern, short-sleeved dolman shape is easy to wear (and put on all by yourself) and a smart choice to knit for fast-sprouting youngsters. Choose a pale shade like Fossil, Woodsmoke, or Snowbound to layer Berenice over any outfit—or splash out with a favorite saturated hue.
