Sumptuous, soft Baby Alpaca envelops your neck, keeping you warm and stylish on the coldest days. The stitch pattern is truly reversible, giving you two elegant cowl options in one. The easy-to-remember eyelet pattern knits up quickly. Available in two sizes. Choose a bouncier yarn like Ginger’s Hand Dyed Flumps Chunky for a more pronounced stitch detail in the lace pattern.
