The jackalope sweater marries two great sweater traditions: wonderful Lopi wool from Iceland makes this a lightweight & very warm sweater, and the Cowichan or Siwash inspired design adds a west-coast tradition with a bit of a twist (who doesn’t love the idea of the jackalope?). With a fit that leaves room for long-sleeved tops underneath, it makes a great addition to any cold-weather wardrobe.
