The Fino stripe wrap is a study in color illusion: the colors of Willa are hand-picked to step up and down in color value. The result? A gorgeous wrap that appears as if it’s rippling in the breeze, thanks to the light-to-dark color palette. Opalite is knit on the bias with changing colors, so it’s a project that will keep you engaged from beginning to end!
