Designed by Rachel Brockman

The Canyon Sweater was inspired by the colors and textures of angular rock formations seen within the canyons and valleys of the western deserts. The traveling lace panels mimic the drop of a canyon, like a narrow river at the bottom of a canyon, which gradually expands towards the top. The beautiful texture of moss stitch flanks the lace. The combination of warm-weather-friendly Dunescape lends itself well to sunny days, offering a cooling, protective fabric with a loose fit that accentuates the drape of the yarn. This top is perfect for cooler summer mornings and evenings.
