This luxurious neckwarmer is the perfect project for small amounts of cashmere or other luxury fibers. Named after the Arctic Bird whose white, voluminous feathers insulate it from its habitat of deep arctic snows. Ptarmigan is meant for next-to-skin wear; you’ll love the cuddly softness of this close-fitting neckwarmer that is perfect for any jewel of your stash. Looks great worn under jackets or sweaters and may even be used for an extra layer of warmth and softness under a thicker wool scarf during winter’ s coldest days.
