The Meltwater Pullover is a Lopapeysa Inspired yoke sweater, knit using water-inspired colors in our US Spun and Dyed season-spanning Savannah.

When designing and knitting this sweater, Kate was heavily inspired by the colors and waves of the Atlantic coast. The combination of bright natural and blue hues makes for a really lovely garment.
