Keiko’s modern design features an organic, asymmetrical cable pattern, a relaxed, dropped shoulder silhouette, a split hem, and a generous turtleneck. Worked in Chickadee Organic Heathers and Owlet held together throughout to create a warm, subtly-marled fabric that seems to glow from within and is irresistible to the touch.
