This cowl is a warm and very practical addition to your wardrobe. Whether it’s accompanying you to that first fall chills or the last spring chills or helping you get through winter’s cold, it will be your perfect cool weather companion. The cowl is worked with two, fingering yarns, an acrylic-metallic blend yarn which gives a beautiful shimmer to the fabric and a fabulous mohair yarn, that adds tender warmth. These two yarns give a warm but light fabric.
