Oishii’s Cosi Knit Capelet, like all of designer Erika Kemp’s cold-weather garb, is hand-knit in the United States using a luscious mix of merino wool, alpaca, and kid mohair. Whether draped like a wrap, slung across a shoulder, or worn as a mini-poncho, the versatile number makes layering for warmth a cinch.
