The KÜHL Alpine Sweater™ uses three knitting methods for variation in texture and appearance- a high ribbed knit pattern for the collar seals out the cold, the body panel has a tight knit pattern, while the shoulders and waist feature a herringbone knit. This soft mélange merino wool sweater sports an asymmetrical Metaluxe® zipper. Length: below the hips. Merino wool is soft to the touch and has outstanding temperature regulation qualities and combined with 20% polyester, this garment will retain its shape and be extra resilient. A mid-weight sweater with style as well as performance qualities, the Alpine Sweater™ is ready to go anywhere.
