Sea Isle Cotton for Spring

Why Sea Isle Cotton?

Sun and natural come together! Organic Pima cotton and fine merino wool in a cabled twist lofts beautifully with big yardage; enough to make the perfect 3 season accessory. A cool summer color palette reminiscent of opening a box of saltwater taffy!
Wool/ cotton blends are perfect for summer. These breathable fibers will keep you cool.
The soft spring colors are amazing!
