We all have that favourite cardigan — that extra cozy one you snuggle into when you need a moment of quiet comfort, the one you can’t quite imagine a winter without. Sierra Morningstar’s Caim is our team’s new favorite.  With a classic shawl collar to hug your neck on cold mornings and a deftly designed mosaic colorwork pattern, Caim is a closet staple that you will enjoy for years to come.
