The yarn used for this flattering-on-everyone tee is light, gorgeous, and completely integrated into the design. Meticulous details like a rolled neck, exposed raglan seams and side slits just add to this sweater’s charm. Note: Even though the design is suitable for other yarns, Julie highly recommends that you use Tsumugi for this garment. The texture and fiber content of the silk tweed is ideal for retaining a smooth, unpuckered ribbed edge and impeccable texture and drape. If you choose to substitute yarn, look for one that contains fibers with similar properties to Tsumugi, such as silk, cotton and linen.
