The aurora borealis, also known as “Northern Lights”, plays
across the northern sky in a mysterious dance of vibrant colors. Work Ilga
Leja's Northern Lights in dramatic colors or try a more
muted palette, if you prefer. A handpainted yarn, in combination with the
sideways construction, will create its own unique display. A solid color
will show the precision and delicacy of the stitch pattern and result in an
understated, yet elegant version of this jacket.
