Drawing inspiration from the tartans of the Highland Clans, the Aros Cowl combines traditional patterns with the double knitting technique to create a cosy and elegant accessory.

Named for Aros Castle on the Island of Mull off the coast of Scotland, the site has connections to many different Highland Clans.
