This cowl is made with the beautiful Canoe yarn by Sugar Bush yarns. It is a bulky weight yarn that is a blend of fibres making it super soft and squishy! One of the things I love about this yarn is the hint of colour that is woven throughout the strand of yarn. It makes it truly unique. If you like this cowl, be sure to check out the listing for the coordinating Rustic River Beanie!
