Giant sequoias are the largest trees in the world and inspired the name for this relaxed sweater that features a dramatic cable panel on the front. The cable is carried into the high neck where is sits as a loose and comfortable turtleneck. Knit in Deluxe Bulky Superwash, this gorgeous sweater is easy to care for and knits up much more quickly than the time it take beautiful sequoias to grow!
