I grew up on a farm in rural Wisconsin. When the glaciers that at one time covered the area receded, they scattered the land with rocks.

Like most farms in the area, ours had huge rock piles that were created as the land was cleared for planting crops. As a child, I used to love climbing around on the rocks and gathering the wild roses that always grew around them. Where there’s flowers, there’s bees. This lovely, reversible cowl, suitable for a man or woman, brings back memories of those times.
