  • CONSTRUCTION

    The cabled honeycomb pattern adds warmth and structure and is very easy to work efficiently without a cable needle. The single button closure makes life easy when the wearer is trying to wriggle away or is determined to dress herself. The stable border and generous a line would also make adding a zipper if desired a simple matter. And yes, the hood really is almost as long as the body in the smaller sizes!
