This clothing label and Bay Area chain warms lassies with elegant hand-loomed sweaters and coordinates.. In Short Yarns made of cashmere, merino, wool, cotton, rayon, or silk are where it all begins. Then they are knitted into all sorts of shapes and sizes: sweaters, shawls, caps, and skirts are woven tight or loose; shaped with v-necks or rounded necks, pullovers or cardigans. In the fall, men get sweaters too. Margaret O'Leary's non-knit casual wear doesn't deserve as much attention as the knitwear, but don't overlook cute additions by other apparel makers.
