Simple details like a doubled collar, split center hem, and decorative eyelets at the shoulders, hem, and cuffs make the Culm pullover a garment that is as polished and shapely as it is a pleasure to wear. The dolman sleeves, nipped waist and drop shoulders create a subtly vintage silhouette. The body and twist of Peerie yarn lends even more depth to the all-over moss stitch and panel of crisp twisted ribbing.
