First Watch

$9.00

Stay toasty warm in this modern wool pea coat. Top-down, seamless and button band is knit as you go!

Product Description

Living near the coast, I appreciate the value of warm, dense wool. No matter how warm it might be inland there’s always an unexpected bite in the air near the ocean; I nearly always find myself wishing I’d bundled up a little more. Knit with hearty aran weight wool at a relatively dense gauge, First Watch is an ideal outer layer throughout colder months. Top-down and seamless – quick knit!

Finished bust: 33½ (36, 37½, 40, 42, 46, 50, 54)”
