Our Sturbridge collection is a banded braid construction, which harkens back to Colonial American culture. It was considered a staple design at that time. There are wide bands of variegated colors that offer an attractive pattern. This old yet versatile technique has been modernized by our designers to display its appeal and charm. The texturized 100% polypropylene yarn provides a wool look and feel, and has the added advantage of easy care and all weather performance.
