The best sweaters are not the ones that are bought as fashion accessories; but the ones that you want to wear even if no one is around. The MARSHALL Sport pullover is just that sweater. Knit from a 100% baby alpaca yarn, its luxurious feel will make it a favorite for going out or staying in.
Alpaca yarns are popular for their softness, and wonderful hand, while their hollow fibers keep you warmer than wool. The MARSHALL sweater was designed to take advantage of the unique properties and increased drape of alpaca yarns.
The MARSHALL pullover uses seamless construction with form-fitting ribbed body and sleeves, while saddles knitted in a reinforcing slip stitch pattern give the shoulders more structure and a better fit.
Special thanks to model Kevin and photographer Joe of Joseph J. Lee Photography for the wonderful pictures!
