What makes our Italian cashmere so special? Not only do we insist on using the best yarn out there, but each season we develop completely custom colors that you'll only find at J.Crew (we work hand in hand with a centuries-old Italian mill to ensure that each shade has just the right depth, saturation and brightness). Every piece is carefully designed to become a forever favorite. In a 14-gauge knit (the higher the gauge, the more refined the fabric), this deliciously airy—yet seriously sumptuous—sweater is sure to be a year-round companion. In addition to a laid-back fit and a lighter feel, it features a crisply engineered stripe (our design team experimented with a new dyeing process to ensure bright, razor-sharp lines). Boatneck. Long sleeves. Hits at hip. Import. Dry clean.
