Pattern No. 3 in the Latvia 100 Collection.

Named for the lush western part of Latvia, known as Courland (Latvian: Kurzeme), this cowl-necked capelet harkens back to ancient times.

The capelet provides warmth to the neck and upper body while, at the same time, decorating the face and shoulders of the wearer. Worked in the neutral shades of undyed linen and wool, this piece resonates with its early origins.

Work your own Courland capelet and re-connect with your own ancient source.
