The textured lace in this cowl forms little protruding bumps that resemble the glacial erratics that litter Nose Hill Park. Erratics take their name from the Latin word errare (to wander), and are carried by glacial ice, often over distances of hundreds of kilometres. So, take a wander through this textured lace cowl and see where you end up.
