Undulating, organic rhythms create an extra-warm, cozy cowl that takes its name from the Polish word for ‘waves’.

Originally inspired by a rustic, sheep-y, fleecy Polish yarn, Fale is also highly adaptable and can easily be knitted in other fibers or gauges for an equally impressive result.

Fale would be a perfect gift for a man or a woman, or even a treat just for you!
