Valley Yarns Mikan is a stunningly soft layer that you’ll reach for again and again. This versatile layer can be worn on its own, under a cardigan or blazer, or over a buttondown or long sleeved tee—dress it up or down and always look put together. Valley Yarns Hampden yarn lends a silky soft feel and subtle sheen with its blend of baby alpaca, Merino wool, and silk. Mikan is knit in the round from the hem to the underarms where the front and back divide to be knit flat separately before joining at the shoulders with a three-needle bind-off. Tidy ribbed trims along the V-neck and arms provide polished finishing touches and have you ready to step out in style!
