The exposed beams (fachwerk) on the exterior of historical buildings in Europe are beautiful. The Fachwerk Cowl reflects these structural supports while contrasting the angular graphic with soft decadent wool, silk, and mohair yarns. Knitted flat and fastened with buttons, the Fachwerk Cowl caresses your neck with gentle warmth and beauty.
