The incredible warmth and softness of alpaca make it a perfect fiber for a cowl to keep out chills without scratchiness. Slipped stitches create a two-color pattern despite using only one color per row.

Inspired by a trip to visit a local prizewinning alpaca farm, Eileen decided to celebrate the range of colors that alpacas produce. With colors ranging from white to true black, the fleece combined with the pattern of this cozy cowl makes a dramatic impact.
