A casual jumper to knit
The Nagano jumper is a must-have for winter and mid-season because of its loose and comfortable shape. It has a straight cut with set-in sleeves and a flared V-neckline, which makes it very stylish. Wear it over a top with a lace trim or a blouse that you leave hanging. The Nagano jumper is knitted with Céleste, a noble yarn made from alpaca and silk. This naturally swelling yarn gives the stitch great softness.
