Faileas combines simple colorwork and texture in this richly patterned cowl in lofty wool and alpaca worsted weight, Owl. Worked in the round as a long tube, the beginning and end are grafted together to form a cowl. We love the natural, woodsy palette of bog and sokoke but you might consider the warmth of cinnamon with abyssinian, an ocean blue palette like cerulean and cielo, or a neutral pair like papuan and albertine.
