The Gentle Lopi tunic, is the most snuggly type of rustic (yet cosy sweater).

It is long and wooly, yet airy and drapey as it is knit on a larger gauge. It is very roomy and oversized, which makes it it very comfortable to move in, and do more physical activities like weeding or picking the biggest porcini mushrooms! But sitting my the fire with a cup of hot cocoa and some knitting is perfectly fine too!
